This could easily be done with a product named UniMerge from Refined Reports.
You'd simply set up a FrameMaker template for use with UniMerge, in which
the appropriate hypertext marker containing the openlink command would be
embedded in each list item. UniMerge then merges the database extract with
the template to produce the hypertexted lists as MIF files.
