You can use bookmarks in Microsoft Word or named ranges in Microsoft Excel to insert text, numbers, tables, or pictures into a template. Refer to the Microsoft Word Help or the Microsoft Excel Help for information about creating and viewing bookmarks and named ranges, respectively. Word template filenames include the .dot extension. Excel template filenames include the .xlt extension. (Office 2007) Word template filenames include the .dotx extension. Excel template filenames include the .xltx extension.

You can use the MS Office Report Express VI to generate reports using templates. For each bookmark or named range, you can specify whether you want the Express VI to format data as text or, if the data is an array, as a table or graph.

You also can use the Report Generation VIs to insert text, tables, and graphs into bookmark or named range locations. In the MS Office parameters input, specify the bookmark or named range where the VI inserts data. If you do not specify a bookmark, the VI inserts data at the end of the document. If you do not specify a named range, the VI inserts data into the cell that the position input defines.
