I read the original post as asking if there is something like odfWeave that works for msword (I assumed windows, but I guess they could be asking about MSword on other platforms, it just sounds like a windows shop).

But yes, sword only works on windows (and is in beta version still) and uses a different interface from the standard sweave and odfWeave (process from inside word rather than process a file through R).
