Just a thought, maybe you could build a macro that does the main part of the job. Then this macro can be called from Delphi...

Look here for info on Excel and Word automation:

Do it in Word and record it as macro. Then have a look at the macro source. Reimplementing this in Delphi should be easier then.

Hello,
You should do a cut and paste,
here is a sample that shows how to create a chart with excell and we copy paste it to a word doc.
we are assuming that we are already connected to excell.
the word connxion is done here.
here we goes :

procedure TfmMain.btExample5Click(Sender: TObject);
var
 WorkBook,Sheet1,Sheet2,Chart:variant;
 Sheet,SeriesCollection:Variant;
 vrange:variant;
 WD,WordDocument,wRange,Shape:variant;
 i,j:integer;
begin
 Excel.SheetsInNewWorkbook := 2;
 WorkBook:=Excel.Workbooks.Add;
 Sheet1:=WorkBook.WorkSheets[1];
 Sheet2:=WorkBook.WorkSheets[2];
 Chart:=WorkBook.Charts.Add;
 Sheet1.Name:='Table 1';
 Sheet2.Name:='Table 2';
 for j:=1 to 2 do begin
  Sheet:=WorkBook.WorkSheets[j];
  for i:=1 to 11 do begin
   Sheet.Cells.Item[i,1].Value:=i;
   Sheet.Cells.Item[i,2].Value:=i*2;
  end;
 end;
 vrange:=Sheet1.range['A1:A10'];
 SeriesCollection:=Chart.SeriesCollection;
 SeriesCollection.Add(vrange);
 vrange:=Sheet2.Range['B1:B10'];
 SeriesCollection.Add(vrange);
 Chart.Select;
 Excel.Selection.Copy;
 WD:=CreateOleObject('Word.Application');
 WordDocument:=WD.Documents.Add;
 if Chart.PageSetup.Orientation=xlLandscape
 then WordDocument.PageSetup.Orientation:=wdOrientLandscape
 else WordDocument.PageSetup.Orientation:=wdOrientPortrait;
 for i:=1 to 5 do begin
  WordDocument.Paragraphs.Add;
 end;
 wRange:=WordDocument.Range(0,1);
 wRange.Paste;
 showmessage(inttostr(WordDocument.Shapes.Count));
// Shape:=WordDocument.Shapes.Item(WordDocument.Shapes.Count);
// Shape.Height:=round(0.75*Shape.Height);
 wRange:=WordDocument.Range(2,2);
 wRange.Text:='Chart From Excel ';
 WD.visible:=true;
 WD:=unassigned;
end;

---

to connect to excell :
procedure TfmMain.btExcelConnectClick(Sender: TObject);
var
 Excel1:variant;
begin
 try
  Excel1:=GetActiveOleObject('Excel.Application');
  Excel:=Unassigned;
  Excel1:=Unassigned;
  Excel:=GetActiveOleObject('Excel.Application');
  isConnected:=true;
 except
  Excel:=Unassigned;
  showmessage('Active Excel not found');
 end;
 RefreshInfo;
 SetForegroundWindow(Handle);
end;

if you give me an email, i'll send you the whole project doing excell automation stuff.
I can't remember where I found so I'm unable to give you the link...
Regards.
