We have a requirement to generate a report in DOCX format using UNIX SAS. I cant think of doing this without using DDE and DDE doesn't work in UNIX. Do you have any suggestions? Any help would be really appreciated.

We are currently producing the output in RTF. However, there is a tool that consumes the output and it can only handle DOCX files. Saving manually is not ideal as you would lose the audit trail. VBScript is a good suggestion but as far as I know it doesn't work on UNIX. Any thoughts?

Interesting, do you have an example Python command or related documentation that I can refer to get more information on converting RTF files to DOCX in Unix?

No, it was developed as part of a consulting contract.
For this type of question, it's not really a SAS issue. I would try posting to StackOverflow, though they require that you have made an attempt to solve the problem. Perhaps searching on there will yield results from someone else.

You should be able to do this with the IML interface to R
There are many R/Python packages create, update or even convert rtf to DOCX
