Talking 1 file saved into 5 different files with dedicated sections

Hello experts,

Let’s say that I sell cookies. I sell the same cookie, but they are sold to 5 different countries.
There are 5 different weekly reports that are written for each country.
Many of the information is similar in each of the section that are listed with numbers (1,2, 3, …. ,7)
I have a short PDF example of what i think it would look like on a word document

- Each section, for example: (6. Financial, 4. Program) is written by different people responsible for their sections of the weekly report
- So, people must open each of the 5 files and input new information or redundant information. This process is repeated 4 more times because there is total 5 weekly reports
- It would be great to have 1 word document with the sections for different countries so people can work on 1 word document only instead of doing the work on 5 different files


- For “ 1. Summary”, I have put there 5 times( 1 for italy, 2 for france, 3 for germany, 4 for denmark, 5 for spain) in 1 file and the person could put information in that 1 word document
- When I save the word document after all information for each section is filled, it should automatically create 5 different word document with their dedicated sections for each of the 5 countries
- I hope that this makes sense my dear experts

If I understand what you're saying correctly, you want each contributor to the various summary reports to be able to work on a single document that contains their contributions to each of those summary reports.

Such can be achieved via bookmarks and INCLUDETEXT fields.

Each contributor would have a 'topic' document consisting of, say, five Sections - one corresponding to each summary report. Each Section would be bookmarked (e.g. Apple, Banana, Cherry, Date, Elderberry).

The Summary reports would each then be comprised of whatever boilerplate text doesn't appear in the 'topic' documents plus INCLUDETEXT fields pointing to the relevant bookmark in each of the 'topic' documents.
