Which way are you trying to go? Have Remedy feed a Word document or Word send data to Remedy?

If you want Remedy to create a Word document, then as long as you can modify Remedy or configure it to do DDE (and it supports DDE) then you just need to know what Word supports and that's fully documented.

If you want to go the other way and somehow send data to Remedy from Word, then you need to speak with the vendor and determine what they support.

It's really the receiving application that's important here, since the sending application has very little to do other then just Open a connection, send commands and then close the connection.

I'm trying to get remedy to create a word document. I want to open a document, put text into it at certain bookmark(I can do both of these), then SaveAs as file selected in Remedy and then Close or Print the document. What are the commands and will they work with all versions of word?
