This is probably going to sound crazy to you Office gurus but I thought I would ask. Is it possible to have a Word Macro linked to the Right Click Context Menu in Windows Explorer. Currently I have a macro in Word that does what I need it to do but I am lazy and was just looking for another shortcut to make my life easier.

Basically I pull alot of fixed length text files off of our mainframe. I need to put them into a Word document before I send them to our sales people. So I pull them off of them mainframe and open them up in Word. I run a Macro that Changes the Page Setup to Landscape and the Font size to 8 and then saves it as a Word Document. This way it is formatted nicely in the Word Document.

I am basically wondering if there is anyway to right click on the text file and select a Context Menu that has my macro, which will launch Word and run the necessary steps in my macro and exit out of Word.
