Are we talking the New World office with the fancy new ribbons?
If so, then ick. I haven't found anything, myself, that helps with this, actually. Everything seems to be mashed into the ribbon as a single, cohesive unit.
There are ways to access the ribbons, sure, but from what I've played with I haven't been able to see a GOOD way to automate, good meaning creating automation scripts that don't require heavy maintenance.
BrentPaine - It is Office 2003 and 2007. They developed an "application" inside of Word. I need to be able to select items from drop-down lists, enter text into text boxes, etc. As a test, I recorded a Word macro but no luck (as I would expected).
MichaelJF - I will look into AutoIt. Thanks for the suggestion.
Joe Strazzere - The individual(s) that will be maintaining these test scrpts are more likely not to be programmers. If I can find something in a tool, that would be a better choice. However, creating the Word Automation is still not off the table.

Maybe, or maybe not, but will they be able to learn and support anything that is made for them? Giving someone a tool and a script is akin to giving someone a fish, they'll be able to use it but will never adapt. Is training an option for anyone who will use the tool?
