What database doesn't matter.

Word and Excel are both COM objects, so they can be invoked via the COM interface.

I usually write the core of the code as a VBA script and then translate it to Delphi.  This example is not guaranteed to be more than close, since I'm running on the linux side right now and can't check my Delphi help files.  However, it encapsulates the intent of what I am trying to put across.

Procedure HelloExcel;
var
    aWorksheet: Variant;
begin
    CreateObject ('ExcelNoteBook', aWorksheet);
    aWorksheet.Cells]1,1] := 'Hello, World';
    aWorkSheet.SaveAs ('Hello.xls');
    aWorksheet.Close;
end;


You can also set formulas, styles, and so on.  Use your Excel and Word online help, and remember that although the API is the same for Delphi and VBA the languages are different.  Arrays are delimited by () in VB and by [] in Delphi for example.
