To actually manipulate an MSWord doc through java you are going to have to use some MicroSoft dlls and some JNI to integrate them into your java app. Without the dll files, the internal formatting and the extra bells and whistles that Microsoft has built in will just come across as garbage in the files.

hi guys, i'm quite agree with Cindy Glass suggestion that one will have to use Microsoft dll to open MS-Office files so could anyone of u guys tell me which dll i'll have to load in java to get the functionality. khurram mirza.

Never actually done it. But don't you suppose a Microsoft forum would be a better place to ask how to use Microsoft dlls than a java forum?
