Must it really be Word?
It would be easier to work with another format. POI is pretty dead.
Yes, we are tagetting at manipulating word right now.
HWPF is not included in the standard jar that you will download from the Apache Organisations site. Instead, you need to visit what they tern the scratchpad area - from where the developers grab source to work on - and download HWPF from there. You will have to compile it yourself as well I believe. There is some good news however, I cannot remember the address of the site but I did find a web page with links to pre-built jar's of this area, just have a search with google.
From my own experiences, I would also reccommend that you look to using JExcel to manipulate Excel worksheets. It does not have the same sort of support for evaluating formulae as HSSF does but it does other things better IMO; little things like exposing the formatting applied to the cell.
I need to know wheteher there are any tutorial or api available for HWPF?
Does HWPF support later versions of Word than Word-97 ?
What manipulations does POI allow to do in Word files?
