Remember how you could do this in Text Management? F2? Some kind of text 
services command key took you into a basic pick your fields interface to 
(what became, maybe?) QQQUERY? Used to use it and Text Management column 
block copies to build documentation and CL scripts from files. Long ago 
and far away... Is Text Management in QSYS38? Might cause a flashback.

Don't know WP/Win; but how about a small database doing ODBC in an OLE

Believe we were able to convert Text Management to source files, lost 
formatting, imported contents. Was there eventually was a converter from 
TM to OfficeVision?

Once doing the conversion this would work for converted TM docs as well.
