I think you will need one document per project and link each 'field' on the document the cell on the worksheet

Select the target position on the Word document and then, select and copy (Ctrl+C) the relevant cell in the open Excel worksheet. In Word, choose Paste>Paste Special> Paste Link>Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object and press OK.

You can always try to mail merge these two documents and create single documents
Once Excel is updated the main document will also be updated
