VB6: Using/Help with Insertable Objects

I would like to use Word on a VB form to give people the ability add some information in a program that I am using.  I am able to add a Word object to a form (I found it on the Insertable Objects tab).  

My problem is that I have no information on how to use this object in code.  Any attempts to find information on this object usually results in me finding information necessary for VB to work with the objects that the Microsoft Word Object Library makes available.  These objects aren't really what I am working for because they force you to launch a separate copy of word in order to use them (?).

As you can tell, I'm a novice at this.  Does anyone know how to programmatically mess with the 'Microsoft Word Document' Insertable Object that is found in "Winword.exe".  Is there any documentation or help files that explain this object's interface?

I'm really just looking for a direction to get started in.

Thanks,

Lankford

Look at the VBA object model inside Word. That is the same interface. BTW Insertable Object is nothing more than starting a copy of word within your window.
