Before I start describing my convoluted hopes and dreams for these apps, let me just say that any and all ideas/suggestions are welcome - I'm feeling pretty stuck Here's my problem: I spend much of my working hours creating decent looking reports in MS Word that include a combination of text and bar graphs based on data I have entered in other apps (SPSS and Filemaker Pro). It really burns me that I essentially have to enter the data twice (once in Filemaker and then again in the individual Word reports), and it seems like there should be an easier solution (and yeah, I need the data in Filemaker for other reasons so I can't skip that step). I think I can do a mail merge to link Filemaker and Word to update text fields (suggestions for this step are welcome!), but what really takes the most amount of time is updating many many graphs in each report. From Filemaker Pro's website, Mac OS doesn't support Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) so it sounds like I can't connect data/fields from Filemaker Pro to graphs in Word. Can anyone confirm this, and does it mean that there is no way to link Filemaker data to graphs? Based on this, it looked like the only way to do this was to export Filemaker data to Excel, create the graphs in Excel, then copy and paste to Word (pasting as a "linked" object). Doing this I could create a report template that would be updated whenever the Excel data was updated. Before I spend the many hours trying setup such a system, I'm hoping to get your suggestions on whether this is sound or if you have other ideas that would work. Thanks so much for reading this, and I appreciate your help!
