Hi, I have a problem that may or may not be difficult. I know it's easy in Visual Basic, so I'm guessing it might be okay in Java too.

Is it difficult to do File I/O to/from a Microsoft Word document? If not, is it difficult to also apply formatting (just bold, italics and underline) to the text?

Thanks!

(Edit: after searching the forum for previous posts on the issue, I'm beginning to get the impression this might be quite complicated... hope not).

It's not terribly difficult to do, but not quite trival either.

One library you can use is POI, a link to which you'll find in the AccessingFileFormats FAQ.
