Why do you want to use Qlik for this?

I don't think that's the right tool for your requirement and that it's easily doable.

If you know the names to search already, you can use a search tool (like provided in Windows OS, there is an option to search in the content) to search in the content of your word documents.

If you don't know the names, you can extract a word list from each document (for example, using python or a tool build on that like TextSTAT). The tool like TextSTAT might already give you the answer needed.

There are lot more tools (for example, some document management systems allow full text search & analysis in all documents).

If you need more complex analysis, you can then import the word list(s) (basically a table with one column, one for each document) e.g. into Qlik and create a table with two columns (word and source).

You can then for example show which word appears in which document.

You will probably find better and more answers to your specific requirement in a forum specific to Word / Office documents or text analysis (which is in general unstructured data, while Qlik only works really good on structured data, hence the need to create a word list).
