get word document version

I want to get the version of a word document.
my problem is when i use this code below:

dim AppName as string
AppName = a.Documents(1).BuiltInDocumentProperties(wdPropertyAppName)

it only returns the current version of the installed word.
for example, if i have word document, version 8.0, and word application install on my machine, version 9.0, this code will return => Microsoft Word 9.0

In this line
AppName = a.Documents(1).BuiltInDocumentProperties(wdPropertyAppName)

a - is an object which is defined by referencing Microsoft Word Library 8 or 9. You cannot set reference to the both libraries and that is why you already know the version of the word that you are using. It is impossible to refer to the different Word version.
