Might work. Any idea if WordLib handles OSX Word 2004? I'm using that
version until I'm forced not to because I have use scores of Word macros I'd
have to recreate with AppleScript if I were to upgrade. Can't quite fathom
why Microsoft decided to make macros in Word for the Mac incompatible with
Windows Word versions.
