populating XML file for form set RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    We have several forms that we need to fill out with the same information for each "case" we deal with. Its the usual stuff like names, dates and addresses.

    At present we fill out each form one at a time - very repetitive.

    I want to have a underlying xml file populate each form.

    This presents a few questions:

    1. We don't have a database to populate the underlying xml file. What would be a good way to have the user enter this xml data? In addition to entering the xml data it needs to be store in a different folder each time (there is a folder for each case) and the dialog box (or whatever) needs to be able to accommodate a different number of people associated with different cases. Some might have 4 people some might only have two.

    2. Then a template, which could be one big document with each form.

    These goals maybe able to be done entirely within word, but I look forward to suggestions on this!
