My requirement is that the non technical people such as Business Analysts should be able to create the template by opening the Word in the UI. Today also I installed the authoring tool aimed at less technical users. Though it was successfully installed, I am not able to make out how to use that. So my goal is that the BA should be able to define the template in Word.
I certainly do not want to install the .NET 4 full framework, and thus the advanced authoring tool. So if you have any reference of how to use the authoring tool aimed at less technical users, that might help.
And as you said, we could add the data binding element, please provide some reference how we would do that. We may able to build an API, allowing the BAs to define the fields and then inject them to Word and confirm.
