I am looking for a way to read the contents of a Word doc in the IFS from an RPG program.  Does anyone know of a way to do this?

I have found some articles about using QShell or PASE to read text files, but I am not sure if they will work for Word documents.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Joy Stalnecker
