I'm reasonably conversant w/ VB and VBA but I can't figure out how to do what I believe should be a simple operation which is to take a bunch of text (call it a long string) and stuff it into MS Word (opening an instantiation of Word as part of the process). I can worry about formatting & stuff later, if someone can just push on my chest to get me breathing.

Thanks for your time.

Set wdDoc = wdApp.Documents.Add
wdDoc.Content.InsertBefore "WRITE THIS TO THE NEW DOCUMENT"
wdDoc.SaveAs "C:\windows\desktop\testDoc.doc"
