doc automation : retrieve information from microsoft word form or excel with scripts


Hi,
I am new to this forum,
I've work with Solairs, AIX and Linux for the pass many yrs with my previous job. I got layoff few months ago. Now I am working in a differenet field (telecom with ATT) as contractor. Part of the job is require to submit some kind of report in MS word format. It is a form to be fill out or create base on the old report. Some of the info came from a Excel file, the other is from MSword. I found it tedious and very annoying to create those document everytime.
Is there a way to retrieve info from a excel file and MSword and use them to create an entire new MS word docuemnt ?

thanks
