What is the best approach for allowing non scripting end user to modify structure of form letter littered with"auto filled" record values?

I've been trying to replace "&" before end user sees &actual record values&

then reinsert "&" and save as changed calculation.

 

how to   ...  extract & modify raw text without seeing inserted values

 

water::flow test form

example global field ;    calculated

 

"To whom it may concern: "& ¶ &

"  On "&date&" Tom's Well Service performed a water well flow test of the  well at "&address&", with the results as follows."& ¶ &"      The well pump produced "&start_gpm&" gallons per minute for a period of "&drawdown duration minutes txt&"."

blah blah blah ...

 

search and replace ...

substitute ...

 

the goal is to have several "report forms" for varying situations
