Forms, word, excel hard desistion

P: n/a
Hello,

I'am used to work with PHP and MySQL on webbased application.

I have to make for my colleagues a program that have to follow a few
dessistions (path) like a flowchart.
The result shood be a word document from about, 150-250 pages. The
chapters are, depending of the anwsers in the virtuel flowchart.
Afterwoods there are more then 100 fields automaticaly filled in from
excel tabels. What qind of fields are depending of the flow in the
chart.
I have tried in VBA but the forms are fixed. You have to pre-deffine
the forms. Difficult to initiate.
Easy to merge different chapters. Layout is automaticaly ok.
Communication with excel works fine.

I don't know how I have to start. Choosing the write language VBA
(word,excel) , VB, C++, PHP with MySQL ???
My knowledge of PHP and MySQL is mutch bether.
I would like to work like in PHP but I can't make any communication
with Word or Excell.

Someone an idea, hint, tip, sugestion

PHP implements the COM interface (when running on MS_Windows) so you
can interact with the documents using their native API.
