I am trying to open up word, open a txt file, run a macro, save the file as Word 6 format, then close.  I can open word and open the file(FileOpen), but do not know the method for running the macro or quitting.  Does anyone know if these methods are documented anywhere.  I have searched all over.

Very good so far, but I still need to know how to save it in Word 6 format before quitting!

If you send a listing, I will increase points to 50.

Have increased points to 50, will double it if you can answer my question on Delphi 3 and website.  I have a real ongoing problem with this.  If you know of someone with a working copy of delphi3 using the internet components supplied, alongside Website, please send me a copy of a simple working program.
