Automated Document Generation in Microsoft Word

January 2, 2015

In this post, I discuss a video of a solution prototype that AIS put together for one of our customers. The requirements were for a large-scale document (correspondence) generation system and included large-scale generation of documents, the ability to author dozens of templates, the ability to generate documents by binding the templates to data from business systems, the ability to support multiple document formats, and the ability to create workflows to support the business processes. We developed a solution for automated document generation using the Microsoft Office system. By combining out-of-the-box functionality such as Content Controls and Open Office XML SDK with a little customization as per your business rules, you can automate template creation, document generation, and document conversion. You can also use SharePoint to allow for Web-based document management. Read on for more about this solution…
