Welcome to JavaRanch, nivedita!
The POI project referenced above doesn't yet provide much support for Word documents. It seems to be a very slowly progressing project that does promise a lot of abilities.
You might want to give The JACOB Project a try. Kai Ruhl wrote a tutorial that you may find useful.
Good Luck.
