DDE Commands for WORD are WORDBASIC statements enclosed in "[]". So, to
open a file you would send a DDEExecute with the string [FileOpen
filename]" along with any parameters, having established the DDE Link.
Do not get too involved with DDE however, because it becomes extremely
flakey with WORD8 (Office97).
