                I am about to release two components that accomplish what you're
looking to do. One is for controlling Word for Windows and the other for
Excel. The component is released as a C++ DLL with a Delphi wrapper and is
expected to cost about $75.00 each. Release date should be before the end of
December. If you're interested in being notified when the product is released
then please send me email.

        thanx & later,
