To complement that answer: You'll need the pywin32 package by Mark Hammond
http://sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32/
He coauthored the book "Python Programming On Win32"; automating Word (or
any other COM application) is covered on that book. I think the freely
available chapters cover this specific topic exactly.
