Here is an example how to do even more. This is intended for filling the data into a document with bookmark.

=========================================================

Declare
  Word OLE2.Obj_Type;
  Arg  OLE2.List_Type;

Procedure Write_To_Bookmark (Bookmark_Name VarChar2, Data VarChar2) is
  Begin
    Arg:=OLE2.Create_ArgList;
    OLE2.Add_Arg (Arg, Bookmark_Name);
    OLE2.Invoke (Word,'WW7_EditGoto',Arg);
    OLE2.Destroy_ArgList (Arg);
    Arg:=OLE2.Create_ArgList;
    OLE2.Add_Arg (Arg,Data);
    OLE2.Invoke (Word,'Insert',Arg);
    OLE2.Destroy_ArgList (Arg);
  End;

Begin
  Word:=OLE2.Create_Obj ('Word.Basic');
  OLE2.Invoke (Word,'AppShow');
  Arg:=OLE2.Create_ArgList;
  OLE2.Add_Arg (Arg,'Example.dot');
  OLE2.Invoke (Word,'FileNew',Arg);
  OLE2.Destroy_ArgList (Arg);
  Write_To_Bookmark ('Bookmark1','Here I am!');
  OLE2.Invoke (Word,'StartOfDocument',Arg);
  OLE2.Release_Obj (Word);
End;

=====================================================

If you just want to open a file use this:

Declare
  Word OLE2.Obj_Type;
  Arg  OLE2.List_Type;

Begin
  Word:=OLE2.Create_Obj ('Word.Basic');
  OLE2.Invoke (Word,'AppShow');
  Arg:=OLE2.Create_ArgList;
  OLE2.Add_Arg (Arg,'Example.doc');
  OLE2.Invoke (Word,'FileOpen',Arg);
  OLE2.Destroy_ArgList (Arg);
  OLE2.Release_Obj (Word);
End;

====================================================
