Exporting layout to Word instead of PDF

I am aware this has been a problem for years, so I am just wondering if anyone has any new ideas.
The merge export and 360's Scribe require a Word template to populate data into, which is not very useful for the application I have in mind.
What I would like to see is the exact method of saving a browse or preview mode layout (ie with data) into PDF, but instead into a new Word document - not a preexisting Word document or template.

If I save to PDF then save as Word in Acrobat, it loses it's formatting.
If I create HTML, it's much to complicated - this is supposed to save time and cost.
The clients want to receive exactly the same thing they see in PDF, but in Word so they can manipulate the format easily - this is to save them having to ask the developers every time some minor change to format or data occurs. Editing PDF is tedious.


I presume this has not been a familiar export due to the flow nature of Word, verses the fixed position nature of PDF. But does anyone know of a simple method to do this?
