    It's not open source, but the free Office Migration Planning Manager from Microsoft will compress Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents by way of converting them into the new 2007/2010 Office file formats (DOCX, XLSX & PPTX).

    You will need to read the documentation to find out the correct commands to use, but you can create a batch file to convert all of your Word files on your file server for example.

    migrate them to odf or docx format. they are compressed.
    You can write a server side script with openoffice to do this. probably can with msoffice too.
