In my program I'm using
var V : Variant;

V := GetActiveOleObject('Word.Basic');

Should I free this object and how can I do this?
Will V.Free do this?

Setting

  V := nil;

should do it. In doing this the OLE object decrements it's internal reference count, and if the referece count is zero then it will be released by the operating system.

Sorry, should have compiled the answer first - using variants it should be

  V := null;


Regards,

John.
