Hi Dennis,
I think you should be able to achieve this.
It's similar to the way the OpenOffice / Coversheets works.
That's normally configured to export as a PDF, but it first takes an OpenOffice 
document (your branded template), and replaces tags (like '##TITLE##') with 
rendered content.

These are the tags:
and this adds them to the OpenOffice document:

Does that help?

There are probably other ways - possibly other perl modules that would allow a 
more direct approach - but the above stuff seems to work OK.
I'm using it with LibreOffice rather than OpenOffice if that's useful to know

Subject: [EP-tech] .docx Export

Hi everyone,

we've had a user request for exporting views/searches as a .docx file
styled in our corporate design. Has anyone ever done something similar?

Just for the file format, it might work to "wrap" a simple text 
in an exporter that has a
"application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document" mimetype,
but I don't see where I could slip in the design template along the way.

I'd be glad to hear from your experiences. :)

Best regards
Dennis Müller, B.A.
