# Revision history [back]

@meakasteve Thank you for a better description of the situation. I have worked a bit with writer documents and macros but not enough to confidently help in this matter. An excellent source for this would be OOME (PDF here).

It does seem to me to be a difficult way to go having to maintain many different documents and also that they be available with Base. Have you considered using another table to store and maintain the information? Your macro can easily recall specific information based upon a naming convention using SQL the paste the data where appropriate. The actual doesn't actually need to be shown on the main base display. From menu, Tools->Table Filter.. allows what tables to show.

Just a thought.
