[R] simplifying a lmer model

I have been using lmer in lme4() to analyse the effect of dropping a term from the model as below
anova.name<-anova(m1,m2)
Where m1 is an original model and m2 has one term removed. I can then create my own type III tables for each variable in the model. However with many variables this becomes exceedingly time consuming! anova.lme in nlme() and Anova() in car dont seem to work for lme objects created with lmer? Is there any other way to create type III tables? Any help much appreciated.
