    Creating an MS Word Document using Cold Fusion

    FavoriteMartian
      I am wondering if anyone knows of any way to create an MS Word document using Cold Fusion? I have an application that reads through multiple tables in a database, then takes the collected data and creates a document using the <cfdocument> tag. Right now I'm creating a .pdf document using this and it comes out great. The problem is that, once the documents are created, they have to be converted to MS Word documents for editing. The conversion from Adobe to MS Word doesn't go very well - the documents lose some of their formatting, invisible tables show up and are out of alignment, extra bullet points appear, etc. I am hoping to be able to create the documents directly in MS Word, thus skipping the .pdf to .doc conversion process. However, I have not been able to find ANYTHING in the documentation that relates to creating MS Word documents from Cold Fusion. Does anyone know if there is a way? If so, do you know where I might find documentation on the methods? Thanks.
