Oh. I see. Well then I guess I'm confused as why the requirement for *.doc. It seems like a lot of work to translate it back and forth.

BTW, while all of my options do require installing / running something on the user machine, they could all be orchestrated via a web application. I don't think you'll be able to get away from some level of code running on user machine if you want to use Word specifically.

If you are looking for something that can be used in every computer with access to a browser, then you should not be looking at Word at all. Just keep the document in Markdown or something which gives the user some limited formatting, such as what Stack Exchange does.

Ah. I do see it now in the top-voted answer, with no details around it. If you consider that adequate feel free to delete this.

Okay. I search for the term Time Boxing on this page and only find it in my answer. But if you feel other questions address the same concept with different terminology than that is fine. I would suggest editing those answers to include the term though, since that is a common term for the concept.

So it looks like my answer is fairly well aligned to your stack. Yes, you might need to upgrade to .NET 4 for some of these options, but that is a simple move from .NET 2 so it shouldn't be a big deal.

comment Development environment to manage multiple Oracle databases
Nevermind I think I figured out the difference. Personal is intended to be a one user license running on a single machine. Standard is for a more "production" situation with multiple users / processes etc. accessing the server. So if I wanted to support multiple instances on dev machines, it seems like I would aim at using Personal Edition.

Thanks Justin. What is the difference between Personal and Standard editions? And yes, we have individual .NET applications that access multiple, distinct Oracle servers (and therefore separate databases). In retrospect, this may have been a bad idea, but we are where we are.

Thanks Christoph. So I can use migrations with "regular" SQL scripts without using Active Record, for example?
