MS Word Doc reformatted

We have a software program that exports necessary information for a "proposal"... It does not export in a format that we can send to the customer. Back in 2003 we had someone come in and create macros in MS Word to reformat the document. The VB script is like 200 pages long. Every upgrade to Word and our software causes certain parts not to work anymore and we do not know how to fix, so we format by hand.

Are there any programs out there that do this type of reformatting. Or other options.

You don't say what sort of reformatting it is.

You can change many things such as font characteristics, line spacing etc. via the buttons in the Font and Paragraph groups on the Home tab.

You may be able to incorporate it such changes into one or more new styles.

Everything gets changed... From Font, bold, tables added, page breaks, etc.... and the initial export for the proposal is 20 pages and the reformatting gets it down to 18. But the formatting does things like pulling in logos from file location also. The reformatting with the macros takes about 1 minute. The reformatting manually takes about 30 minutes or more depending on the skill level. We do about 3,000 a year. It has to be fast and easy.
