 DDE from Filemaker to Word

Hi,

Does anyone know how to establish a DDE conversation with Word from
FM5. I can start Word but that's all. I wish to communicate with Word
to input some tekst and save the Word file named with a name provided
by my Filemaker database (FP5). I know how to do it from Word to Excel
with macro's language. Filemaker has devided the command- and the
syntax structure into separate fields in it's scripting window and
that's makes it for me not easyer.

Word knows the commands:
Initiate a DDE: DDEInitiate(Application$,Topic$)
Requesting info: DDERequest$(ChanNum,Items$)
Sending Information: DDEPoke ChanNum,Items$,Data$
Sending Commands: DDEExecute ChanNum,Commands$
Terminating: DDETerminate ChanNum

Maybe someone can provide me with an example how to establish it.

Thanks,

Marcel
