Creating a Template Manual for Multiple Specific Facilities RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am currently trying to discover a way to create an actual operations manual that has standard content but will also employ a list of required fields asking for specific information regarding a facility which will then distribute that information to certain areas within the document in order to make "Specific Operations Manuals". This will speed up the process as each facility needs its own manual containing unique identification and contact information but with pretty much the same content inside.

    Is there a way to do this?

  • Hi TWARD

    This can be done and there are a number of ways to go about it, depending on how "fancy" and fool-proof you want it to be. Which approaches can be used will depend on the version of Word involved.

    Which version of Word will be used?

    Do you want a solution that does not involve writing programming code?

    Can you describe in a bit more detail how you imagine the user should interface with the variable parts of the template?
