I'm happy to announce the 1.0 release of WordReport. This library lets 
your LiveCode stacks crank out MS Word and OpenOffice reports of any 
kind: business documents, contractor invoices, real-estate flyers, mail 
merge, product catalogs, software data reports, educational worksheets, 
band concert posters, customer service letters, or whatever else you 
dream up. (In fact, the demo stack includes sample code and templates 
for three of those scenarios.)

You create a formatted template with data insertion tags, save it, and 
then insert your data from within LiveCode to create reports. WordReport 
is self-contained and doesn't need any word processing software to 
create reports, but you'll need MS Word or OpenOffice to create the 
templates. The demo stack will get you off to a quick start exploring 
capabilities, and a friendly User Guide explains everything.

The library handles images as well as text and has other advanced 
features such as loops and optional context marking. It handles Unicode 
and as a bonus, in addition to the unlimited formatting in your 
template, you can include basic styles within your export data for extra 
emphasis on the fly. It does headers and footers too. And tables. (And 
number formatting with commas if you need it.) Everything you need to 
make customers and clients happy with great-looking reports, while 
improving your own back office workflow too.

To celebrate this release (finally!) I'm offering WordReport on sale at 
a very special introductory price for 10 days. Get it while it's low! 
This is a power tool for saving time and producing great documents in 
all kinds of practical scenarios.

(A hearty thanks to the beta testers also. And for those interested in 
news about WordOut, the export library, a beta has been available for 
some time, email me if you wish to try it. I'll be finishing it up as 
time allows, and as promised, those who purchase WordLib at full price 
before the WordOut release will receive an export library discount.)

Best wishes,

Curry Kenworthy
