I myself have little experience with COM except with Winamp related things.

http://us2.php.net/com Has some examples and code on how to deal with Word Documents and PHP COM objects.


And read here for the MS Word object properties and methods.

For non-Windows machines, use RTF instead of DOC format. It is to Word what CSV is to Excel -- standards-compliant yet still gets the information into M$ Office.
