I have a report that I have created in document composer that uses multiple reports to produce the output. The current format is PDF, however, the user needs to edit the information after the report is created with special comments. Is there a way to feed the report to a Word document so they can edit it and it will keep the general format of the way the report is set up? Or does anyone know of a way around this? The option of using an excel document and uploading to a Micrsoft Mail merge is not the way I want to go either, to cumbersome in building it that way.
Any ideas? Thanks! AndreaThis message has been edited. Last edited by: Kerry,

As its in PDF, perhaps a PDF editor would be the way to go.
Word is not an option, I have tried this some time ago with several options, but the result was not what you should like.
Waz suggestion could be the way to go
An other one is putting the remarks in a database and recreate the report after they made there remarks. (not easy I know....)
I have done Word documents before, but using EXL2K format returning as DOC format, it sort of works, but does not respect pagebreaks.
Here is my try.
DEFINE FILE CAR PageBreak/A200 = '</FONT></TD></TR></table><span><br clear=all style=''mso-special-character:line-break;page-break-before:always''>' | '</span><TABLE X:STR BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=0 CELLSPACING=0><TR><TD>' ; END TABLE FILE CAR HEADING "DOC Test" PRINT CAR MODEL BODYTYPE BY COUNTRY PAGE-BREAK FOOTING BOTTOM "<PageBreak" ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON ON TABLE SET STYLE * TYPE=TITLE, STYLE=BOLD, BACKCOLOR=YELLOW, COLOR=BLUE, $ TYPE=DATA, COLUMN=CAR, COLOR=RED, $ TYPE=HEADING, STYLE=BOLD, SIZE=14, COLOR=PURPLE, FONT=ARIAL, $ ENDSTYLE ON TABLE HOLD AS H_DOC2 FORMAT EXL2K END -RUN SET HTMLFORMTYPE = DOC -HTMLFORM H_DOC2
