| I want to make a temporary file (directory listing), open it

| 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,

Haven't tried the technique myself, but this post

looks like it might do what you're after. In essence,
you use CreateProcess to run Word (which is a bit messier
than the other techniques described, but gives you a
bit more control), and then you use the handle that passes
back to determine when it's finished.
