I'm not sure what you mean here Kevin: "When I simply file out to Word, I
lose the end of my record." I haven't run into this problem.
As far as DDE goes, what about using a predefined template:
Here's a great MSWord DDE paper with lots of ideas to borrow from:

Subject: WORD, DDE, format.font
First of all, thank you to the many people that have responded to my
questions concerning Tufte.
I need to write a DNA sequence to a text file. I have chosen *.doc over
*.txt since I can change font colors in Word. This I will do manually.
When I simply file out to Word, I lose the end of my record. I can
accomodate this by using 8 point font, for which I switched to DDE:
data _null_ ;
file word_sys ;
put '[EditSelectAll]' ;
put '[FormatFont.Font="Courier New"]' ;
put '[FormatFont.Points="8"]' ;
I submit this before writing my text. Word seems to switch back to my
default, Times New Roman 12 point. Can I overcome this or do I need to
alter Word directly?
Thanks in advance,
