What do you really want to do?
- Attach a Word document in a form?
- Generate a Word document using data from an Outlook form?

In the first case, a custom Post form should be sufficient.
In the second case of (a custom Contact form for example), just place a command button and add a similar code :

Function CommandButtonFax_Click()  
      ' --------------------------------------------
      ' Generate a fax document in Microsoft Word 97
      ' --------------------------------------------
      ' --- Create a new instance of word application
      Set objWordApp = Item.Application.CreateObject("Word.Application")

      objWordApp.Visible = True
   
      ' --- Create a new document based on the specified template
      Set objDoc = objWordApp.Documents.Add("h:\tecdoc\templates\fax.dot", False)

      Set olMAPI = Application.GetNameSpace("MAPI")

      ' --- Replace Bookmarks with data from the current item
      objWordApp.Selection.GoTo -1,,,"To"
      objWordApp.Selection.InsertBefore item.FullName
      objWordApp.Selection.GoTo -1,,,"ToAddress"
      objWordApp.Selection.InsertBefore item.BusinessAddress
      objWordApp.Selection.GoTo -1,,,"ToPhone"
      objWordApp.Selection.InsertBefore item.BusinessTelephoneNumber
      objWordApp.Selection.GoTo -1,,,"ToFaxPhone"
      objWordApp.Selection.InsertBefore item.BusinessFaxNumber
      objWordApp.Selection.GoTo -1,,,"From"

      ' --- Get the current Outlook user
      objWordApp.Selection.InsertBefore olMAPI.CurrentUser
      objWordApp.Selection.GoTo -1,,,"Body"

      Set objWordApp = Nothing
End Function

I need to find literature on this stuff.  Also, I want to format the email messages that I develop (bold, indent, etc) so If you have any ideas tell me and I'll post the question.
