There are softwares on the market to do such things, I believe one is called Omni Page. It might also depend on how the documents/forms were put into the system originally. If the items were scanned into the system and the scan was done with OCR scanning software you may already have the capability to amend forms or documents, that would be something to look into at least as a starting point.
I find myself in the position undertaking a project at a small company in rentals. I am super motivated and sometimes find myself over-hyped with the opportunity (self admittedly-no shame). I know I need to be able to organize categories/sub-categories of equipment. I have a lot of the inventory in spreadsheet files(excel), and so any suggestions would be great. Again at this moment using what i have is more important. Sadly there is no budget. Is software or either more DIY Excel/ApaceOpenoffice.org linking there files into a DBMS an option?
I mean what i see is
Ideally i would like to use the Already written Excel docs that has the data, and have it so when i need to write up a contract as i type in the info a package will pop up because info is already in a DB file. If possible i would like this process to be dynamic seeing as though i may have to edit the form.
Thanks in advance...
