Tool to create report document from survey before submitting?

We have field staff collecting data with laptops, and one of the most requested features is the ability to view all of the question responses in an easy-to-read word document. Since the information is all saved in the autosave.json file, it should be possible for someone to create a tool to do this. With repeats in the form, it would be so nice to be able to evaluate everything in a list before the data is submitted to the webservice.


Has anyone else tried creating such a thing? I would love some feedback on ideas for how you would go about doing this. My initial idea is to get it into word, and build some type of macro around reformatting the json. I am not experienced with macros at all, and foresee many long days ahead... Alternatively, writing something in python would be easier for my experience, but either way parsing json is going to be totally new for me.


Thanks for ideas and discussion.
