Im currently only using X5, but you can save Active Reports as a Rich Text Format (.RTF) and this is quite compatible with MS Word. Depending what you want it to do. I just had a play with it and it came across pretty well. Let me know how you go.

RTF works great in Word.

Yes, it does save in RTF but when we played with it, it lost some of the geometry ie our tool table has boxed lines all around each tool for clarity, and rtf lost the boxes on import/save.
Also, it would be soooooo nice to not have to mess with save as etc...but I'm probably hoping/dreaming.

We have just been so busy that when we were going to instal mu1, it was mentioned here that mu2 was in the pipeline, so that is the only reason that we held off.
FWIW, we use X+ for the quick set sheets for parts that don't repeat, and create long winded in word the set sheets for the parts that do repeat.
I put an enhancement request into CNC for this in X4 days and have a number...
BTW - Anyone use Nitro for converting pdf to word? is it 100% and easy peasy to use?
