Hi all:

Thank you for all your answers. This will need to be done on a daily
basis. The word document will have images embedded. The biggest
challenge that I am facing is , when these word documents are
converted to XML, they should conform to the existing schema i.e. the
conversion should have all the elements on the schema mapped to this
word document.

OpenOffice is a suite similar to Microsoft Office available for Windows,
Linux, etc. You can get it from Sun Microsystems at no charge. It can save
files to it's own XML format. From there you would have to write an XSLT
document to convert it from the native OpenOffice XML to your preferred
format, using a suitable XSLT engine (e.g., Saxon, Xalan).
