Populating an MSWord document table from BCB

I want to populate a table in a Word document from a BCB program.  The VBA fragment:

Dim MSWord As New Word.Application
Dim Doc As Word.Document

    Set Doc = MSWord.Documents.Add(Template:="C:\mytemp.dot",NewTemplate:False)
    Doc.Tables(1).Rows.Last.Cells(1).Range.Text = "some"
    etc..

...works fine as a Word macro, but I cannot get:

   MSWord = MSWord.CreateObject("Word.Application");
   Variant NewDoc = MSWord.OlePropertyGet("Documents").OleFunction("Add", "C:\\mytemp.dot",False);
   Variant Doc = MSWord.OlePropertyGet("ActiveDocument");
   Variant Tables = Doc.OlePropertyGet("Tables");
   Variant Table = Tables.OleFunction("Item" , 1);
   Variant Rows =  Table.OlePropertyGet("Rows");
   Variant Last =  Rows.OlePropertyGet("Last");
   Variant Cells = Last.OlePropertyGet("Cells");
   Variant Cell  = Cells.OleFunction("Item", 1);
   Variant Range = Cell.OlePropertyGet("Range");
   Range.OlePropertySet("Text", "some");

... to work at all.  The program halts at the "Variant Rows" line with an _ASSERTE dialog box and an "IsBound()" error.

Does anyone know an easy way to do this or where my error is?
