Starting A New Project

P: n/a
Hello:

I have a bunch of data contained in about 15 tables. I need to use
data in the tables to create on-the-fly a fairly complex word
document. Based on the data in the tables, the document needs to
have things like:

Sections of text included/excluded
Changes in pluraility (ie. house or houses)
Complex nested tables.
Running figure numbers based on what was inclded or skipped
Intelligent page breaks
renumbering of the table of contents
etc...

The final document seems to be too fluid to create a simple template
and use a mail-merge type approch. The final product has to be in
word (or rtf) format.

How would you attack a problem like this?

Thanks.
