In a past life, I used to integrate Toolbook (Asymetrix) applications with Winword and EXCEL using DDE.  This allowed me to pass data to and from MS documents and then remotely run macros in MS to format, chart or mail-merge, etc.  This was extremely powerful and pretty reliable.  

Now I am an unrepentful RR convert (no going back!) can anyone suggest whether or not this, or something like it, can be achieved with RR?
