how to export from custom-s control to a word document

hi i have set up a custom object to hold some customer data linked to the account
 
within the custom object i have made a custom-s control and included the fields i want to export, but how do I get it to open up the data i have selected in a word document ?
 
i basically want to click on an export button within one of the custom object tabs and word will open with the content from those fields populated in word
 
is this possible without having to purchase a subscription to one of the add-on app-exchange modules ?
 
thanks

yes this is possible but you will have to write an activex control that gets called by your scontrol and this activex control is what actually opens up word after merging your fields in.
