Check out the Jakarta POI project which does just this.

Cheers

But I think this is only supporting Microsoft Excel.

Thanks

Since Word can read RTF formatted files you may have better luck aiming at that format rather than DOC. The open source Apache Formatting Objects Project (FOP) has some capability of RTF output although it seems to concentrate on PDF output.
The iText project also appears to be aiming at RTF as an alternate output format.
Both of these assume your text can be written in some sort of XML tagged character stream.
