There are two ways I know of to export you text to word.  By code, and using the export function of Criystal Reports 6. The code is below, it is pretty basic, and doing any formating can get real complicated.  If you go to www.seagate.com, you can download Crysatl Reports 6 for free.  CR6 has an export function that is pretty easy to use, and does a decent job on formating.  The version of Crystal Reports that comes with VB5 does a terrible job of exporting to word.

'This example open a new word document and write to the file, you must be using Word 95 or 97

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim oWord As Word.Application
Dim oDoc As Word.Document

Set oWord = New Word.Application

' Open an existing file this way

' Open a new document
Set oDoc = oWord.Documents.Add

oDoc.Content.InsertAfter "Mary had a little lamb," & vbCrLf & "Her fleece was white as snow"

oDoc.SaveAs "C:\Junk.Doc"

Set oWord = Nothing

End Sub
