HI Jorge

You need to use the Desktop Office Integration (DOI) classes. These allow you easy OLE access to MS Office and other OLE enabled objects. (In the help documentation there is a wealth of information under: SAP LibraryBasis ComponentsControls and Control FrameworkDesktop Office Integration).

If you wish to store a Word document (or any other document) in SAP, then you can use the Business Document Service (BDS) (SAP LibraryBasis ComponentsBasis ServicesBusiness Document Service).

look it in help.sap.com documentation

If you are looking to actually store the documents in SAP, then DMS is the way to go.

There is some config work required, however, the set up is is relatively straightforward.

There are a suite of bapis to automate the creation, check in, and linkage of documents in DMS. Additionally documents can be be stored on a standalone content server to minimize impacts on the core database.
