This sounds like an interesting problem.

So, just doing it manually, how do *you* know how many spreadsheets are 
required for any particular result?

I have multiple spreadsheet files that each represent one unique item.  
As an analogy, think of the spreadsheet as a basket that contains a 
variety of eggs (both calculated and hand-entered data). I have multiple 
baskets each with multiple eggs.  Each basket (spreadsheet) is 
associated with one person.  Each person can have multiple baskets 
(although that's probably not relevant).

I also have a letter, with which I want to do a mail merge - against 
each spreadsheet.  i.e. each letter needs to draw multiple pieces of 
data (eggs) from each spreadsheet, one letter per spreadsheet.

Normally to do a mail merge you have one data source.  The problem of 
course is that I don't have one data source, I have an unknown number - 
each spreadsheet is a data source.  So I'm at a loss as to how to mail 
merge against multiple data sources in an automated fashion.

Thank you in advance.
