I'm trying to use R (and Sweave) to pull some data out of a database and 
produce some standard reports.  unfortunaltey, the people who want the 
reports want them in an editable format so they can add wordy bits to 
the automatically generate tables and graphs.

My current plan is to use R to call a standard sweave document and pass 
variables to tell what data to pull out of the db, then use latex2rtf to 
turn the tex file into rtf.  However I'm stuck with latex2rtf.  It's 
chocking on some of the latex that sweave wrote (such as {Schunk} 
{Soutput} {Sinput}.  Has anyone used latex2rtf succesfully with sweave 
and is willing to share their experiences ?
