Using the Template

First, a document is created based on the template. This is accomplished in the New Document task pane. The scorecard.dot template may be listed in recently used templates, or it can otherwise be browsed to.

Running the Routine to Extract the XML

Once a new document has been created based on the scorecard template, the first action is to run the get_scorecard_data routine from the Macros dialog. See Figure 15.7. Starting the routine could have been automated, but this approach lets the user control the order in which the document is filled. For example, the header or footer might be changed, or text could be typed below the tags. The user might enter information into the Comment tag. Such changes are likely to be made after the document has been filled with data, but our solution allows the user to do this first.
