Rich Text (RTF) / Word Automation

I'm using VS .Net, and am having some trouble with Word Automation.  I have gotten far enough to be able to open up Word, create a new document, and use the "TypeText()" command to display text.  However, what I need to do is be able to add text that is stored in Rich Text Format to the Word Document.

The rich text that I need to display in the Word document is not just basic formatting, either.  There can be lists and other such things in the rich text, so simply parsing the RTF file and setting Bold / Italic / Underline / Font on the Word Document won't work.

You need to insert the RTF as a file:

    ChangeFileOpenDirectory "C:\personal\other\testBed\"
    Selection.InsertFile FileName:="p205.rtf", Range:="", ConfirmConversions:= _
        False, Link:=False, Attachment:=False

For example.

That worked extremely well, thanks!  If you hear of a way to do this without having to create a temporary file to store the RTF data first, please let me know.
