In our web app, we need to use the mail merge functionality. I am just wondering if there is a way to achieve this without installing office on the server.
Right now, I am doing this on my dev. PC using Interop word. I am not sure if it'll work once the app is deployed on to the server.
I know this can be done using third party solutions. Just wanted to know, if there is any other way.
Appreciate the help

I am thinking Interop is your only option without purchasing a component to do the work. Though, sometimes buying the component winds up being cheaper in the long run if you compare the cost it will take to develop the component vs buying it off the shelf.
That in the end usually winds up being the justification. Just my two cents worth. :)
