Welcome to JavaRanch.

GIF is an image file format, while DOC is a word processing format. So, what exactly do you mean by convert GIF to DOC - create a DOC file with an image inserted?

Do you mean, you have an image, stored in a GIF file, that contains a bitmap with text, and you want to make a program to recognise the text and create a Word document from the text? That is very difficult. You will need OCR (optical character recognition) software to do that; it's not something that you can easily program yourself.
