I have Office 2007, PC.

I want to create a letter template that allows the user to click on a contact from the Outlook address book and pull the information in about that person for the To block (recipient name, address, city, state, zip). I added the Address Book to the QAT and it sortof works but I can't figure out how to pull in specific information into particular places in my document. It always just pulls in the Name, Company, and City/State/Country, which is not exactly what I want.

I found some macro suggestions that work, but not good for ease of use company-wide . Is there a way to setup Word/Outlook 2007 to pull only specific information? I have played with the Mail Merge option to import contacts, which is terrific for large Mail Merges but it is a bit clunky for a single letter. Is there a way to create a custom Content Control, Building blocks, fields or that fancy pants XML data binding? Some setting in Outlook? Any help or recommended reading would be greatly appreciated!
