Hi Max,

It looks like most of answers were towards to the statisticians you work with (i.e. R -> Word).  For yourself, if you just worry about converting the PDF reports from your statisticians to Word, here is another link with a more comprehensive review besides the two online apps Prof. Harrell's mentioned on his webpage.

Also, Adobe Acrobat 9.0 can do PDF->Word, but I haven't tried it personally.
