Michael,

I'm aware of a good attempt at a general approach, here:

<http://www.cs.uiowa.edu/~rlenth/StatWeave/>

I did not have as much luck getting it to work, whereas Ben's SSC package worked out of the box, so to speak and worked directly with sjlatex from Stata Corp, and was simple to understand.

Russ Lenth's site mentions Open Office, however. Microsoft Word is certainly capable on the Windows side of things if not as much on the Mac.

Murrell has interesting comments on this kind of activity.

http://www.stat.auckland.ac.nz/~paul/Talks/litdocbrief.pdf

concluding proprietary formats are out, LaTeX is out, Sweave is out, and

XML+Xpath+XInclude+XSLT+Sxlst

is in.

I have no idea what he is talking about! But you would think that give the XML interoperability of MS Office products, something could be cooked up, particularly since you can write any code from a Stata .do file.

There have been several user group attempts to use MS Word in this way, some sounded OK, from what I remember reading, but none have caught fire as Nick's comments suggest.
