In one of my softwares, I use OLE to transfer data into a Word file.  Each time I use this code, I open a NEW Word window.  How can I insert the data in the ACTIVE DOCUMENT if Word is already open?

I did not test the code bellow. That is why I write a comment. If I am correct - you can ask me to write the answer.

procedure TForm1.Button1.Click(S: TObject);
begin
    V:=CreateOleObject('Word.Basic');
    If v.documents.count>0 then
       v.documents[1].activate
    else
       v.FileNew('Normal');
    v.Insert('I want to insert something there');
end;

Your code give the error :
"'documents' method non supported by automation object"
(in french : "Méthode 'documents' non supportée par l'objet automation'"

I use DELPHI 3 in french
WORD97 french

My code :
=========
procedure TPHOTOTHEQUE.SpeedButton7Click(Sender: TObject);
var v:variant;
begin
   V := CreateOleObject('Word.Basic');
   V.AppShow;
   V.FileNew;
   if DataModule1.Table1NOMIMAGE.Value <>'' then
   begin     v.InsertPicture(REP_I_DATA+'\'+DataModule1.Table1NOMIMAGE.Value,true,false);
      V.Insert(#13+#13+DataModule1.Table1LEGENDE.Value);
   end;
==========
works fine but always open a NEW Word window. How can I insert the data in the ACTIVE DOCUMENT if Word is
                     already open?

Here is what you need!

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,  StdCtrls, OleAuto, ComObj, ActiveX;

procedure TPHOTOTHEQUE.SpeedButton7Click(Sender: TObject);
var v:variant;
  ClassID: TCLSID;
  Unknown: IUnknown;
  x: IDispatch;
begin
  try
    ClassID := ProgIDToClassID('Word.Basic');
    OleCheck(GetActiveObject(ClassID, nil, Unknown));
    OleCheck(Unknown.QueryInterface(IDispatch, x));
    V:=x;
    V.AppShow;
    V.Insert('Hallo from Delphi');{or what you really need}
  finally
     v:=Null;
  end;
end;

AS you see, I added TRY statement.
try
......
v.Insert('Hallo');
except
v:=CreateOleObject('Word.Basic');
.......
end;
v:=Null;
