I've done this sort of thing using OpenOffice from Rails- it's fairly
simple to work with.
I have been looking at serving up an OpenOffice doc but could not
decide on the best approach. eg. I have an order form which is
created as part of a user process and then emailed as confirmation and
printed from the browser. It would be nice if the user could also ask
for a copy of the form to be served into openoffice (without too many
itermediate steps) I guess some of the answer is probably more
applicable to an openoffice forum, but from a rails point of view, I
cant think how to make the page available from the web page interface -
it's something i have never seen described. Maybe it cant be done,
other than as an upload?
Can anyone offer any pointers?
