Design and develop an [url removed, login to view] C# application that takes an XML datastream, and enables a mail merge into a MS Word template and a PDF document.
A sample of the xml input would be as follows
<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?>
<XDBMS name=\"\" value=\"\" description=\"SampleData\">
<XDB name=\"Field1\" value=\"\" />
<XDB name=\"Field2\" value=\"\" />
<XDB name=\"Field3\" value=\"\" /
<XDB name=\"Field4 Child Breakdown\">
<XDB name=\"child1\" value=\"\" />
<XDB name=\"child2\" value=\"\" />
We would setup a MS Word mailmerge template, and use the xml fields above as the data source. In the case of a pdf document, we would employ an adobe pdf form in place of the MS Word template, and again use the xml fields above as the data source for the adobe form fields.
We'll need to be able to call the Ms Word doc/ PDF form from within an ASP.NET web application, fetch the xml data from a sql server database table and/or web server file, and populate the documents with data.
