Is it possible to copy text from Internet Explorer to Word using Java Script?

For example I would like to press a button in IE and Java Script looks if there is an open word document.
The first it finds gets the focus and some text will be copied into the doc.

I would hope not.... If there was it would mean that any page you went to would be able to read open word docs on your pc.  This is disabled for security.
