I guess the aim of this project is to have a customised print from Autocad using fields automatically filled within word??? By far the simplest way to achieve this would be with a two pass print - let Autocad print the first page and then reprint the info from Word - that may not accomodate what you need however...
I'd be inclined to write an app that gathers the appropriate data from both using OLE or Postscript if necessary, merge the data, and then output it from your app using the PCL6 driver - that way you keep the print speed up but make it easier to translate the data...
For information on programming & working with PCL, HP have an excellent technical guide - it now comes on CD - Kathy will probably pop in and give ordering details... :-)

Thanks, Stuart, for the introduction...
Here's ordering information for the PCL Technical Reference bundle:

tring to pull the atuocad dwg file into a word doc look promising but the out of the drawing was not very readable.
i have not thought about using a postscript driver. this might prove viable.
i need info on pcl 6 not pcl 5

join the program as an affiliate member (for free ;-) Then go to developer kits, laserjets, printer languages, PCL 6...
I think you might also need the PJL reference to strip all the unnecessary information from your files.
