Data from a data base can be inserted into a template. Perhaps this data has changed since it was last updated in the database, and the template-running-user is the one who knows about this change. It should be permissible for the user to change the data and have the change propagated back into the database.
XpressDox Docussembly™ document assembly software makes it easy to perform advanced document assembly functions, like selecting a single instance of a repeated data element, including data from a data source, and using the ‘Refresh’ and ‘Save’ options with templates using data sources.
