The R2wd package can be used to send things to word documents, that may work for you. If you want this done automatically you could look at the txtStart and related functions in the TeachingDemos package and just change the parts that send plain text to the file (sink) with commands from R2wd.
An alternative may be to use emacs and ESS instead of Word, there R is more tightly integrated.
Hope this helps,
