Reproducible documents provide an efficient way to produce reports by automatically generating content from code chunks within the report. The processing of a source document, that contains code chunks, to a final document, that contains automatically-generated content, is typically one way, with the resulting report being read-only. This report describes an experiment that attempts to make the final report document modifiable and attempts to invert the process from final document back to source document so that the modifications to the final document can be efficiently conveyed back to the original author of the report.
