Actually let me try to make my question simpler

Purpose : to load XML data (data.xml) into Word document (word.docx).

1. Create a word document with merge fields.

2. Create an XML document with data to be filled into Word document Merge fields.

3. Insert XML tags as value of Merge fields ?

I am stuck over here as I am not sure how to insert logic in merge fields. Is it possible ?

Ex :

<xsl:value-of select="books/book/author_name"/>


<xsl:if test="books/book/author_name/text() != 'ABC'">


<xsl:when test="books/book/author_name/text() = 'ABC'">
some text in word document

4. Save word document (word.docx) as word 2003 xml file (word.xml).

5. Use WordprocessingML Transform Inference Tool to convert word 2003 xml file to xsl file (word.xsl).

6. Use Java Transformer to merge word.xsl with data.xml file

Is it possible to insert xsl logic into merge fields in word ?

Or do I need to convert xml to xsl and then add logic ?

I appreciate if anybody can provide me some guidelines.
