It is possible to do that, using the API SetParent. Using this API, you tell that the parent of an external application is your application. I have never do that with Word, but with Crystal Report, it works.

Declare Function SetParent Lib "user32" Alias "SetParent" (ByVal hWndChild As Long, ByVal hWndNewParent As Long) As Long
