Thanks for e everyone's response.
I'm going to look at the pointers you've provided.
What I'm convinced they want to do (I know, not right tool for the right
job) is have a form doc that can be opened on demand, filled in by the
operator then printed. I'm being led to believe that they don't even want
to save it to disk.
They're just looking (it seems) to provide a way of forcing the formatted
output of some fields. It's not even critical, it's an exercise for them
and, as much as it pains me I'm letting them run with it to let them learn
Thanks for everyone's time.
Best wishes to all for the new year!
