Why is this a brilliant function for a custom Word template?
Many reports are based on data which is compiled and analysed within Excel. However, these reports are being prepared within Word which requires data transfer and often long-winded formatting to present these data tables in line with the prescribed Word template formatting. Updating data tables can become a chore, especially when time is of the essence.
How does it work?
Our Smart Table tool sweeps through each row and column and quickly applies the appropriate agreed template style, adhering to the corporate visual rules. Specialist settings such as ‘Heading rows to repeat across pages’ are applied or the table can be forced to stay together on one page. Auto-numbered captions are assigned which can be used for automated Tables-of-Tables or for nifty cross-references within text (which then automatically update when the caption of your referenced table changes).
There is one button that does it all within a split-second.
