I created the Document Builder to automate the process of building the Directory of Colleges and College Stores for the National Association of College Stores. Previously, NACS had outsourced the creation of the directory once a year to a third party, which wasted a lot of time and money with out of the office communications and revision after revision. The new Document Builder allows NACS to create the directory at any time with the press of a button.
The Document Builder is essentially a fancy mail merge tool built with VB.net and SQL Server. It allows you to easily read hierarchical data from a database, format the data exactly as you want it, and output it in a variety of formats.
