Getting an instance of Word will allow you to access the ActiveDocument or the Application's current Selection. Remember to do error checking to make sure you've got what you want.

    Sub GetWordDocument()
        Dim wdApp As Object

        'Turn off error handling since if the Application is not found we'll get an error
        'Use Late Binding and the GetObject method to find any open instances of Word
        On Error Resume Next
        Set wdApp = GetObject(, "Word.Application")
        On Error GoTo 0

        'Check to see if we found an instance.  If not you can create one if you desire
        If wdApp Is Nothing Then
            MsgBox "No instances of Word found"
            Exit Sub
        End If

        'Check if there are documents in the found instance of Word
        If wdApp.Documents.Count > 0 Then
            wdApp.Selection.TypeText "Cool, we got it" & vbCr

            'You can now access any of the active document properties too
            wdApp.ActiveDocument.Range.InsertAfter "We did indeed"
        End If

        'Clean up the Object when Finished
        Set wdApp = Nothing
    End Sub
