When I create a new doc I need to pre fill the contents of an RTF with some user defined formatted content ( eg tables and text of varying fonts) which is stored in a cfg doc field.

Ideally, I like to store it as an attachment in a cfg doc field, then when required open it, copy it and paste it all into the field of the new document. I assume I would need to use some VBA for this.

To save time I've tried just storing the content as is, and copying it directly to the new doc from within the postOpen event of the new doc but it doesn't work
