VB & MSWord Help!

VB & MSWord Help!

VB & MSWord Help!

First I would like to thank anyone in advance for any light they could shed on this issue for me.
My program; This is a "Suggestion Box" Small program I would like to implement on our computers in the factory.  The user enters his/her suggestions for improving on different catagories of their job, the program then generates a report in MSWord, and Saves the file to a folder on the network.  Another copy of the report is inserted into an email via Outlook, and is sent directly to the director of HR.
The problem:  This program works fine on the computers in the office, however the computers in the shop do not and can not have office installed on them (no licences available for that).  So, I am trying to get the program to load the Word.exe from a server, and also use the outlook.exe from the server, so the program will work.  In theory, this is a suitable work around.  However I have been unsuccesful at getting my program to load these *.exe's!  Any ideas ?!
