Note that many of the general solutions offered produce documents (.doc,
.html, .rtf) that can be then converted to formats Word can take as
described at http://biostat.mc.vanderbilt.edu/SweaveConvert. That page
has an example where pdflatex is used to produce a complex table
containing graphics in some of the cells, and I used a web service to
convert to .doc.
