    What does your "plugin" plug into - word, your web browser, your email client ?

    Or do you mean you have a word plugin which runs just before word quits?

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    A crude way would be to do something like this
    system("word temp.doc");
    which would only return when the user had saved temp.doc and quit word.

    A more refined approach would be to use OLE / DDE / or whatever microsoft calls it's inter-application interfaces nowadays.

    But I don't know any details, since IANAWP.
