Does anyone know or have an opinion as to whether Framemaker or Open Office would be better for creating one document that will hold information for several other documents? For example one master document where an Admin Manual, User Manual and Test Cases are updated and then the relevent information is extracted as the product is updated. This may be better done with individual documents into one directory but I'm just trying to make this easy for everyone in my company that will need updated documentation on an update product release basis (quarterly).

Any ideas are appreciated.
