My original post is called "Start application & continue after app exits". 
Is there a better way to refer to past posts, btw?

I want to make a temporary file (directory listing), open it in Word to let 
the user edit, layout and print it, and then delete the temp file 
afterwards. I don't think we'll be able to fully automate it, though. The 
user should be able to set her own fonts and stuff.
