    Hello,
    I have been playing around with the Mail Merge capabilities added to WordsProcessing as part of UI for WPF Q3 2014. One issue I've found is that our current Mail Merge solution allows us to specify child tables in the merge, I have been unable to figure out a way to do this in Telerik. For example we can provide a list of customers to the merge mail where each customer has a list of items they have ordered, the mail merge allows us to create a table with the list of items for each customer. I know that this is not standard mail merge functionality but are there any plans to implement this type of merging capability in the Telerik Mail Merge? Our current Mail Merge solution causes some formatting problems which don't appear to exist using your solution so I would like to be able to recommend that we transition to a full Telerik solution as we are already rendering the results in the RadRichTextEditor but without a sub-table solution I don't think this will be possible. Thanks for your time!

    Hello Jason,

    The functionality you are referring to is known as nested mail merge. We already have it in our backlog, but at this point is still not scheduled. Here is a link to the public item in our feedback portal where you could follow the item and get notified when there is some progress.
