I have a project where we are stiring he "pieces" to put together a legal pleading in a sql server database, now we need to output this , the tricky part is we need to be able to output onto a "legal peladings" format so full page with numbers on the side as a background, with a XX" header and XX" footer, and page XX of XX in the footer. The data is stored as html text (with formatting and such), I've tried using word-dcom and doing a word merge which is kind of succesfull, however it will not format the text with the html markup and It doesn't appear that I have that option. So reaching out to see if anyone has had experience with any kind of "report writer" that would possibly do this? See here: http://www.arroyoc.com/mergedformatted.pdf
for an example, everything above the html marked up text is no problem, the issue is the "body" and how to get that to format properly.
