Document merging with Open Office Writer

OpenVPMS utilises OpenOffice Writer to produce client and patient forms and letters. 
 
Within these open office documents we can utilise field names that get automatically replaced by OpenVPMS with the information associated with the form or letter being produced. 
 
As OpenVPMS is based on a archetyping principle which allows the data being stored to be readily modified, we had to define a field naming approach that catered for this as well. 
 
The following tables outlines  the currently defined fields that can be included in different document types:
