Send DDE Execute w/ Microsoft Word

Has anyone had any luck using the "Send DDE Execute" script step to place text into a Microsoft Word document?

I've been able to get Microsoft Word to open and create a new document and have the entire contents of a field placed into the document. The issue is that sometimes the script will fail with no changes whatsoever to anything in the FileMaker field.

Microsoft Visual Basic will open a debugging window when the script fails. It appears that on occasion an underscore is being added to the inserted text which is causing the DDE to crash. (The underscore is added without quotes.)

It looks to me look a bug with FileMaker.

I’m currently using FileMaker Pro Advanced 8.0v3.

Thanks,

Andrew
