Generate a formatted word document

Hi,
I work as an English Teacher in China and I am looking for a more convenient way to make homework to let the kids take away. I have to make a dozen different homeworks every week using Microsoft Word, and it is a little tedious.

I have used a site that is programmed to generate documents in word or PDF format depending on the options chosen in the webpage. Can anybody suggest a way of doing this conveniently. I used to know a bit of HTML and javascript but I have no knowledge of server based languages.

Many Thanks,
James.

Re: Generate a formatted word document

Hello,

What would be the inputs ? What makes you think that feeding these inputs in the database of such a website would take substantially less work than placing them directly within a word document ?
Just trying to understand what you script is supposed to do (in any case you will need to feed the data yourself our take it from an external source, somehow)

Re: Generate a formatted word document

Thanks for your response,

The inputs would be date, unit and lesson information, as well as a list of words from the lesson, 4-8 images.
I guess I hope the advantages would be that because I use the same formatting, I could feed that into a script that would put the information in the right places, and especially useful would be to automatically re-size the images into tidy spaces on the document.

I guess I should clarify, that I only need to use a such a webpage locally and don't need to put it online.

Many Thanks,
James

Hello,

I'm not sure whether such a software / script already exists but I guess that this would be an easy task for a virtual programmer (you can find them on elance or on vworker).
