Dear friends,

Is there any bean or method available by which we can write a msword document from our program including tables.
I checked out WordML but it appears quite complex.

Kindly help.

Writing an MS Word document is non-trivial simply because word processors have complex functionality (not to mention MS doesn't play well with others). Our Accessing File Formats FAQ gives you some options.
I've had good results with OpenOffice, but it is a steep learning curve as well.

You could try the iText library to create RTF documents.
