Feasibility of an Idea

Iím the student intern for a small office that handles a lot of contracts on a daily basis. Currently when we receive a contract we print out a face sheet with the persons name and other relevant contact information. Because we handle many contracts from various departments we have about 513 individual Word documents that contain an individualís name, department, phone and so forth. I was wondering if there is way in which I could create a database that could be updated and which would populate the fields within MS Word. Eventually I want the office to have one form that has a drop down option that allows users to select the name of an individual and automatically fill in the rest of the fields.

Is this idea feasible using Access and Word? If it is, where should I start looking for more information? I feel that I have an above average knowledge of Word, but would still need more information.

Thanks in advance to any replies :whistling:

Zer,
If you are familiar wit Word then a simple solution would be to setup a mail merge with an excel spreadsheet.
