I wrote this in VB but it should be all good in asp.

I'm not positive that you need the app.quit at the end, though.

I'll test this tonight and let you know if I have any trouble.

Or if you play with, let me know if you have any success with it.

Hope this helps.

    'Create Word object.
    Set app = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    'Open new document.
    'Open an existing document.
    app.Documents.Open "d:\don\test.doc"
    'If multiple documents open, activate the one you want.
    'Type text.
    Selection.TypeText Text:="I love to program computers."
    'Save new document.
    app.ActiveDocument.SaveAs "d:\don\new.doc"
    'Close that document.
    'And save it.
    'And close document.
    'Close the app.
    Set app = Nothing
