Default Send text from external program to Corel Draw

I'm needing to be able to send text from a Windows program to CorelDraw (sending along the font, size, options) and have CorelDraw generate an EPS file for production and a .jpg for preview.

Is this possible?

Default Sending Text

Does the other program support some type of automation like VBA? I send information from Outlook and Excel to CorelDRAW via VBA. It really is going to depend on the other program you are using.

One idea off the top of my head would be to use a program like Macro Express.
Like Shelby said it would helpful to know what the program that you are getting the data from is capable of.

Another alternative, and something I do a lot in my daily automation, is to have CorelDraw read a text string that is inside the clipboard. Draw can open a new file and create it based on the text string that vba can split apart into a set of commands.
