Tables in word document Open XML

Hi folks, I have been spinning my wheels for a couple of days on an issue with server side open xml code. I have a word template that I want to fill, with a general information part, and a table below. The general information part I was able to populate using content controls and it works fine. The problem I am having is with the table, it is dynamically generated based on a dataset, I'm not sure what to use to create the table, should i use content controls? create the table from scratch, try to find the table in the template and modify it? any one has exprience with this? I'd greatly appreciate any help in the mater.

Thanks
Z

Thanks Dave,

The data i wanted to display was all dynamic, so i couldnt have anything preset, I found the blog below, which even if you cannot understand the language, the code is well written and does the trick. I've expanded it and created my own class that not only creates the table that from the dataset, it also can append new single rows as needed.

I created xml word docs once.
I created the template layout manually so it was just as I wanted then saved that as xml.
Then I grabbed data from a DataSet using GetXml() Then used XSLT to combien the two.
Pretty easy and worked very well.
