It is yet another method -- a slick Word macro that automatically formats the 5250 text and adds a border around...
the 5250 "screen" in Word.
To use the ScreenShot macro, first display the 5250 screen, click and drag the cursor over the text you want to copy (or alternately, select all text), then press Ctrl-C or Shift-Insert to copy the text to the clipboard. In Word, simply run the ScreenShot macro. The macro formats the text and pastes it into the Word document.
I commented out some of the lines below to make this macro work with Word 97; you can uncomment the lines for Word 2000.
