Usually @Metchley the reason for this is because they want the final soft version to be stored in SIMS against the students' profiles, in the doc manglement server, and maybe even pushed out to sharepoint from there.
Our primary school are so against SIMS they write them manually in Word, then they get uploaded individually one at a time to the DMS by the admin lady!
If the report-writing software could produce pdfs of each report or maybe export the whole lot in one Excel worksheet it could be picked up by SIMS?

The closest you can get to putting docs into SIMS easily is with something like RecordLink Writer ( i think it's called) from Cohesion software, which has add ins for Office. This lets you attach documents to SIMS straight from Word.
