You could compare the generated files with files that are known to be
correct and contain the expected result. Such a scenario could be set up
as follows:

1. Run the test with a switch "do not compare".
2. Manually load the generated file into the target application (Word,
Excel etc.) and ensure that it is correct.
3. Move the generated file to a directory with "should be" files.
4. Future test runs use the file to compare with the files they generate
themselves and remove the latter if the comparison yielded equality.

(HPSF does it similarly.)

This could be done, too.
