Does this have something to do with .Net/C#? Are you trying to do this
using a C# program? Automating Office?

It still does not help in what you are trying to do. What type of
document? Does it use Office? What templates? This is all specific to
your project?

I think you need to provide more explanation about what you are trying
to do. I am not aware of any out of the box document management
software(whatever that is) from Microsoft.

RA... The best I can do is suggest data bound winforms in C#/VB that
know
how to print themselves to a printer using drag and drop "Printable
Components". So you enter the data, "Add" the row to a database, and
print
the document.

Of course, only the printable components appear on the document.

Jeff

Office 11 has two solutions for Document Management: Windows Sharepoint
Services (which is a free component that runs on top of Windows Server 2003)
and Sharepoint Portal Server, which is a commercial product that sits on top
of Windows Sharepoint Services, and provides some basic document management
services. You can find details at the following links.

Office 12 will have quite a few more features for document management,
although I can't share the actual scope (largely because I don't work in
that division and I don't know it :-). I couldn't possibly do justice to
the next version so I won't try.

If you want documents to be created from templates, you should look at the
combination of Windows Sharepoint Services with Microsoft Infopath. Inside
Microsoft, Infopath and Sharepoint are used quite frequently to create
forms, manage documents built from templates, and distribute information to
specific audiences. The next version of Sharepoint will include workflow
capabilities that combine the power of Sharepoint for document management
and records management with the XML capabilities of Infopath. Really cool
stuff.
