If you want to generate many similarly formatted documents, you might want to consider creating a template.

Macros are what Word developers call bits of VBA code. VBA code can manipulate most Word objects using the Word Object model. A good place to start is to record macros in Word (Tools/Macro/Record New Macro). Though such recorded macros do have their problems, you can learn a lot by studying the code produced. You can toggle to the VBA editor form the application interface with ALT + F11

In VB6, you can use more-or less the same code as in VBA, so you could copy and paste the code.
