Default automatically building a document in word

I want to create a template for surgical procedures. I
want the template to have buttons that I can press and
the appropriate file automatically inserted into the
text. Multiple files have to be inserted into the final
document so that various variations to the operative
procedure can be used. The buttons need to be invisible
in the printed text. Is this possible to do in word 2003
or is there another product that this can be done in and
then converted to word?

Fellow MVP Bill Coan has built an application that allows you to do this
sort of thing. Take a look at his website at
http://www.wordsite.com/products/dpdas.htm

Here is what one user in your profession had to say about it:

"DataPrompter 2003 will be the centerpiece of our new electronic patient
records system, using its document assembly capability to manage patient
notes, referral communications, informational and instructional handouts,
etc. All of this is being accomplished at minimum cost and with virtually no
learning curve on the part of the staff. We're expecting a substantial
reduction in "pilot errors" and a huge productivity boost. Congratulations
on another winner."
