   Nor am I, but I'm also somewhat baffled - but I can at least help you.

   To export to Word, simply export as RTF, and save it as Report.doc (or
whatever you want with a .doc extension).  All versions of Word (at least
Word 95 and beyond) will read it without a problem.

   It would seem to me that simply cross referencing the RTF code and
having it default to a .doc extension and calling it "Microsoft Word
Format" in the export would be a Good Thing, if not precisely true.  It
would certainly assist and enable end users... and if that's not the
objective of KOffice, please feel free to disabuse me of that notion. :)
