How to merge Infopath data in Word template

Hi Experts,

We have a MOSS 2007 portal here with an Infopath doc library. One Infopath doc containt various informations about a customer, product they needed, technological information,address, etc. Now, we would like to take some of those informations and merge it into a Microsoft Word 2003 template. The goal here is to automate, for example, the creation of a contract where the client name, address, targeted product, etc. would be automatically filled into the word template.  I already tried to insert a field from an Infopath XML document without success (it tell me that Word get an error while loading the xml file). I don't really know what to look for...

So, the question is : How would you do that? Custom code in the Word template? Custom code in the Infopath form? Secret magic feature on the MOSS?

Thanks

Thanks for the response. I think the link show how to merge different infopath files into one, and that's not exaclty what i want. The goal is to take informations from an infopath xml and merge it into a word file.

I'm now looking into XSLT, it seam that I may be able to do something with it.

Ok -- we haven't implemented this yet so I have no way to know or test... but I did run across this which has a ton of links in it which might prove helpful (or not :)).
