We have to write a complex document, made up of several chapters, every chapter has its own writer.

The idea is to have every person write and maintain a separate document, and the final document should be built from these separate chapters, plus some common headings. footings and so on.

It is like one would set the cursor at specific places in a (template) document and do Insert -> Document several times. But we want to do this automatically somehow, to avoid doing this manually again and again.

With LaTeX and company that's as simple as using the \include{...} directive at appropiate places. What solution could be used with OpenOffice here?

Not sure why you are asking about OpenOffice (though it must be similar), but in LibreOffice, you use Master Documents for that.

Thank you very much for the pointer! I haven't noticed this feature.

And yes, I'm using LibreOffice, I've named it OpenOffice because I started to use it when it was bearing that name :)
