Hello guys.. I've got a question.
I have a "template" word document that must be customized according to the user's requirements.
The word document contains fields that need to be accommodate, for example:
Loan amount <<credit_amount_field>>
The amount of cretid to you,
<<middle1>> <<surname>>
of
<<address>>
something like this.
does anyone how to create a java class that takes up this document and adapt it creating the m$$ document??
thanks in advance

hmm. Looks like the POI word subproject hasn't gotten too far yet. They may someday.

I think you are better off doing something like that using MS Tools. The fact is that MS can change their Word document format any time they feel like it and your program will fail.
