Hi,

I have been looking around for a solution to my problem for sometime and have tried to use Excel2Word! but not had much success. I have attached example data on the file data.xls and an example of the template i want to fill on Template.doc.

The titles of the columns reference the same names as within the template.doc file, I would like a solution where i can populate the word document based on what cells i select from within Excel. For example how would i generate a filled template using information from row 4, 5 or 6 etc.

Thanks,
Chris.

does it need to be word?

it's quite easy to just create your template on a new excel sheet (see attached file), just fill in the ID and done...

Doesn't need to be word but im not sure what you mean regarding the new excel sheet.

The only outcome is i need a document i can send to a contact which contains only the information relating to that line in the excel sheet.

This is an ideal candidate for Mail Merge.

Running the merge creates a separate document for each record in the excel list. This can then be printed or sent as an email.
