outputFile<<"Name: "<<Pname<<"		"<<outputFile<<"Date:"<<TDate<<endl;

You output what outputFile returns. This line should be

outputFile<<"Name: "<<Pname<<"		"<<"Date:"<<TDate<<endl;

Actually this:

outputFile<<"Name: "<<Pname<<"		"<<"Date:"<<TDate<<endl;

is the same as this:

outputFile<<"Name: "<<Pname<<"\t\t"<<"Date:"<<TDate<<endl;

can you modify the font coming out to the word document throught the program?
