LMAO...

I won't ask you to go to the help file, in fact, I'll give you the answers.

1. Run()

2. WinMenuSelectItem()

3. ControlSetText() / Maybe ControlSend()

4. ControlSetText()/ Maybe ControlSend()

5. ControlCommand()

6. WinMenuSelectItem()

Now if you don't know what these are... THEN LOOK AT THE HELP FILE.

$word = objcreate("word.application"); to run word
$word.visible = 1; to show it
$word.documents.add; to make a new document
$word.selection.insertafter ("Whatever"); to type something
$word.documents.save; don't know what you exactly need but this safes

i think its easier to do the com-thing than to do

opt("wintitlematchmode", 2)
controlsend("Document", "", "_WwG1", "whatever")

because in com you can format the thing just as you want

$word.selection.font.size = 20

instead of

controlsend("Document", "", "_WwG1", "^9^9^9^9^9^9^9^9whatever^8^8^8^8^8^8^8^8")

or what do you think?

I was going to suggest you write the XML file directly; however, Word's XML is ugly: :)

(Watch out for word wrap and note that AutoIt has a 4096-character limit per line)

CODE
$fileName = @ScriptDir & "\exampleOutput.xml"

FileWriteLine($fileName, '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>')

FileWriteLine($fileName, '<?mso-application progid="Word.Document"?>')

FileWriteLine($fileName, '<w:wordDocument xmlns:w="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/word/2003/wordml" xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" xmlns:w10="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:word" xmlns:sl="http://schemas.microsoft.com/schemaLibrary/2003/core" xmlns:aml="http://schemas.microsoft.com/aml/2001/core" xmlns:wx="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/word/2003/auxHint" xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" xmlns:dt="uuid:C2F41010-65B3-11d1-A29F-00AA00C14882" w:macrosPresent="no" w:embeddedObjPresent="no" w:ocxPresent="no" xml:space="preserve"><o:DocumentProperties><o:Title>This is a test</o:Title><o:Author>CyberSlug</o:Author><o:LastAuthor>CyberSlug</o:LastAuthor><o:Revision>1</o:Revision><o:TotalTime>0</o:TotalTime><o:Created>2006-03-15T14:17:00Z</o:Created><o:LastSaved>2006-03-15T14:17:00Z</o:LastSaved><o:Pages>1</o:Pages><o:Words>6</o:Words><o:Characters>33</o:Characters><o:Company>AutoIt Forums</o:Company><o:Lines>1</o:Lines><o:Paragraphs>1</o:Paragraphs><o:CharactersWithSpaces>38</o:CharactersWithSpaces><o:Version>11.6568</o:Version></o:DocumentProperties><w:fonts><w:defaultFonts w:ascii="Times New Roman" w:fareast="Times New Roman" w:h-ansi="Times New Roman" w:cs="Times New Roman"/></w:fonts><w:styles><w:versionOfBuiltInStylenames w:val="4"/><w:latentStyles w:defLockedState="off" w:latentStyleCount="156"/><w:style w:type="paragraph" w:default="on" w:styleId="Normal"><w:name w:val="Normal"/><w:rPr><wx:font wx:val="Times New Roman"/><w:sz w:val="24"/><w:sz-cs w:val="24"/><w:lang w:val="EN-US" w:fareast="EN-US" w:bidi="AR-SA"/></w:rPr></w:style><w:style w:type="character" w:default="on" w:styleId="DefaultParagraphFont"><w:name w:val="Default Paragraph Font"/><w:semiHidden/></w:style><w:style w:type="table" w:default="on" w:styleId="TableNormal"><w:name w:val="Normal Table"/><wx:uiName wx:val="Table Normal"/><w:semiHidden/><w:rPr><wx:font wx:val="Times New Roman"/></w:rPr><w:tblPr><w:tblInd w:w="0" w:type="dxa"/><w:tblCellMar><w:top w:w="0" w:type="dxa"/><w:left w:w="108" w:type="dxa"/><w:bottom w:w="0" w:type="dxa"/><w:right w:w="108" w:type="dxa"/></w:tblCellMar></w:tblPr></w:style><w:style w:type="list" w:default="on" w:styleId="NoList"><w:name w:val="No List"/><w:semiHidden/></w:style></w:styles><w:docPr><w:view w:val="print"/><w:zoom w:percent="100"/><w:doNotEmbedSystemFonts/><w:attachedTemplate w:val=""/><w:defaultTabStop w:val="720"/><w:drawingGridHorizontalSpacing w:val="120"/><w:displayHorizontalDrawingGridEvery w:val="2"/><w:displayVerticalDrawingGridEvery w:val="2"/><w:punctuationKerning/><w:characterSpacingControl w:val="DontCompress"/><w:optimizeForBrowser/><w:validateAgainstSchema/><w:saveInvalidXML w:val="off"/><w:ignoreMixedContent w:val="off"/><w:alwaysShowPlaceholderText w:val="off"/><w:compat><w:breakWrappedTables/><w:snapToGridInCell/><w:wrapTextWithPunct/><w:useAsianBreakRules/><w:dontGrowAutofit/></w:compat></w:docPr><w:body><wx:sect><w:p><w:r><w:t>This is a test</w:t></w:r></w:p><w:p/><w:p><w:r><w:t>Example text goes here</w:t></w:r></w:p><w:sectPr><w:pgSz w:w="12240" w:h="15840"/><w:pgMar w:top="1440" w:right="1440" w:bottom="1440" w:left="1440" w:header="720" w:footer="720" w:gutter="0"/><w:cols w:space="720"/><w:docGrid w:line-pitch="360"/></w:sectPr></wx:sect></w:body></w:wordDocument>')

here's the thing. you're not making any kind of an effort to do it yourself. if you don't care enough to atleast do the tutorials in the help file, or show some kind of effort at all, then noone is going to help you. you're not asking for much, but you've not DONE anything. in addition to the help file, there is a thread here that has a .pdf that one of the forum users has been working on. i'd point you that direction for your help.

***edit***

p.s. welcome to the best forum on the net. i genuinely hope you decide to put forth some effort to learn and you'll really enjoy autoit and this forum.

Script:

opt("wintitlematchmode", 2)
Run("winword")
WinWaitActive("Word")
Send("Hi, I have no idea what is AutoIt had have 100% no understanding of COM, so scram off{!}")
Send("!f")
Send("!a")
WinWaitActive("Save")
Send("testing")
Send("{ENTER}")

Breakdown (as usual, it's a habit)

Run("winword")
Run Microsoft Word (exe name is "winword")

WinWaitActive("Word")
Wait for the Window "Word" to appear

Send("Hi, I have no idea what is AutoIt had have 100% no understanding of COM, so scram off!", 1)
Send the string to Microsoft Word

Send("!f")
Go to the File Menu

Send("!a")
Select Save As

WinWaitActive("Save")
Wait for the SaveAs Dialog to appear

Send("testing")
Send the file name

Send("{ENTER}")
Press Save

#)

Tested on Microsoft Word 2000 (9.0.3821 SR-1)

EDIT: Chec this out AutoIt 1-2-3
