Where is the datasource information stored within a template?

This article explains where within a Windward template that datasource information is stored. When templates get emailed their datasource information travels with that template. 

Typically most Windward templates are created in Word and a Docx file comprises of a collection of XML files that are contained inside a ZIP archive. The contents of a new Word document can be viewed by unzipping its contents. Once you have you’ll find in the word directory within the settings.xml file the follow nodes <w:docVars><w:docVar w:name="WR_DATA"

WR_DATA contains data source connections as zipped base64 encoded data
