Could I retrieve data directly from PI within the MS Word?

Dear All,

 

As you know, a lot of reports were generated within MS Word. When it comes to plant operation and maintenance data, the most common practice is to, (1) open the ProcessBook, (2) select tags from ActiveView, (3) fill them out in the PB trend and get the data, or (4) to open the MS Excel with Datalink to retrieve them. I was wondering whether there be a way that I could retrieve data directly from PI via VBA or any other tools, as the DataLink does?

 

Any clues?

Thanks in advance.
