We're using VS 2005 and .net 2.0 with sqlserver 2000 and Windows Server 2003. We need to populate Word Templates from user supplied values entered in a web form. We then save the word doc and allow for printing it. I've found a couple of high priced components
online but being an NPO I'm not sure the board will fork out 8 grand for a 4 developer license. I looked briefly at npoi on CodePlex but it looks like it is having some trouble getting started and I'm concerned that a strong user group may not form around
it to provide some answers for those of us who need it. We also create Excel reports on the fly.
Currently an instance of word or excel is being opened on the server and it is causing grief hence the need for a rewrite. Any suggestions on a component to use? I'd certainly be into open source but feel that a strong user group is prety important. I'm
open to hearing more about npoi too :)

Thanks for those suggestions hans_v. I'll check them out. They look pretty barebones but they might do the trick.
