Default Help with using tables to create text.

I am a physician who would like to use tables in microsoft word to help create a normal appearing text document.



For example, I want to be able to use drop down lists and combo boxes for physical exam findings which then is formatted to show in a more readible format....

Example table for a knee exam:

Range of motion ----- 0-130 degrees
Effusion ------- None
Incisions -------- Healed scars
Joint tenderness -------Medially
ACL -----------Stable
MCL -------(No data entered)
PCL -----------Stable


Desired output:

Knee exam: 0-130 degrees. No effusion. Healed scars. Joint tenderness medially. ACL stable. PCL stable.


Basically I want to be able to enter data in a table which then outputs the entered data into a readable text document. Is there a way to have data from a specific cell be entered in a document? Is there a way to have nothing show up in the text document if I choose to not enter something in a field (ie I did not perform that specific portion of the exam and therefore do not want anything to show up).

Thanks.
