XML -> Word
Does anyone know how it might be possible to link data which is in an XML document into a Word document? I don't want to just read the XML doc in Word, what I would like to do is, say, have a table or something in my Word doc which I can say "actually this column refers to that item in the XML document over there, and this other column refers to that other data". You can definitely present XML data in different ways, for example using Cocoon to present the data as HTML or WML, or PDF, and I suppose I want to do something pretty similar, but in my case one of the presentation methods is a Word document.
Word 2003 now has native XML support... go find the schema for it somewhere and then you can create your own docs.

Sounds like you need an XML ODBC datasource, you could then insert an Excel sheet which queried the datasource. I know Crystal Reports had an XML ODBC driver, I'm not sure if there are any others about though.
Tony - you mean embed Excel sheets into the Word document?
