it'd probably involve the word com object .

you'll find some code snippets searching with google:

Having hacked out several different fairly advanced macrobased word templates a couple of years back I'd probably go for the second link TP posted.

Either way, you will probably benefit from opening VBA for word locally and play around with the existing VB api's, just open word and press alt+F11 and you are in. You can also record some macros and take a look at the code that is generated.

Why should you do this?
Well if you take a look at the second link above you are using php to go through the com object to access words api. That way it's a lot easier if you have at least some idea of how programming word works.

Then, good luck finding an online server with word & PHP installed. I for one would not have word on a dedicated web server...
