Is a distributed mail merge possible?

Here's what I'm trying to do. I was given 50 excel spreadsheets and 50 word docs, and a WORD template. The 50 word docs are a form that was filled out by a client. I needed to cut and paste numbers from cells 9B and 9E from each spreadsheet and the employee name from the word doc into the WORD template. I did it the slow dumb way and it took me all day. The obvious answer is a mail merge but I've only done that with a single source that had all the info I needed in a list. Is it possible to merge info from multiple non list sources? I would call such a move a "distributed" mail merge.

Any direction would be helpful. Thank you.
