Is it possible to store a document in a database and then be able to load it into VB and populate specific areas with data from textBoxes? like address or name details

I suppose a bit like a mail merge ?

Yes you can save the content of file into database. And you can read the content back and display on controls..
Which data base are you using?

I will be using SQL I have thought of an easier way of doing what I want by storing the letter as an image I can load that into a form and then place text boxes where I want the data from the DB ? what do you think I know you can store Text but is it formatted the way a document would be and how easy is to then have specific fields populated?
