HTML - Template, change only one copy for all files


I

Hi

i am planning to create a data dictionary document using HTML. I am
using MS Word as editor.


i wish to create a content page with hyperlink to each data field
definition.


eg main.html
===========
1) Field 1 Char To store age
2) Field 2 Char To store name
3) Field 3 Date To store DOB


each field will be hyperlink a html file itself. eg F1.html,F2.html
etc


in each Fx.html file, my layout at present is :


Section 1 : Difintion
Section 2 : Checks
Section 3 : Code description


My question :
==============
If in the near future, i wish to add it Section 1.1 and Section 4 to
the layout. I can edit the content of the new sections for the
different data fields though.


may i know is there a way for me to change just 1 layout template
instead of adding these new sections 1 by 1
in all the Fx.html files ? The number of data fields can go into
hundreds.


I wish to plan it now so that i do not have to go thru massive
maintenance effort later.


thank you
Boon Yiang

Good luck with that.

While I can see how you may think this is a HTML question … it is
really an office question. Try

IMHO If you wish to avoid a massive maintenance, perhaps Office is not
for you.

First, don't use Word as an editor. You will experience many issues in
the future.

This is time consuming, but easier than you think it may be. I would use
PHP and mySQL, and get away from any Office Product for this purpose.
