Well, I don't know if it can be used with Word or not, but you might consider Sweave for use with LaTeX. Maybe if you use the sink() command this might work, but I haven't tried it.

Subject: [R] Tranferring R results to word prosessors

I have just started looking at R, and are getting more and more irritated at myself for not having done that before.

However, one of the things I have not found in the documentation is some way of preparing output from R for convenient formatting into something like MS Word. An example: If you use summary(lm(....)) you get nice output. However, if you try to paste that output into the word processor, all the text elements are separated by blanks, and that is not optimal for the creation of a table (in the word processing sense).

Is there an option to generate tab-separated output in R ? That would solve the problem.
