Thank you. I believe I've gone looking for easy/fast code which dumps to '.doc' format and been disappointed. I've used what I've found to great effect, but your offering appears to be a straightforward way to dump text to '.doc'.
A couple minor things "got" me in playing with your sample:
1. The package seemed to need a line saying use Win::OLE;
2. I thought the file would land in the current directory but instead it landed in "My Documents". No big deal for me to put an absolute path name like "C:\\mydocument2.doc"
3. I'm confused about SaveAs: it's calling a different SaveAs routine, isn't it, and so might your method stand having a different name?
As to how to name it WHEN you upload it, I like the "general to specific" approach previously mentioned.

have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
