   Dim newApp As Object  
    Set newApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    newApp.Documents.Add
    newApp.Visible = True

You can also just use

   Dim newApp As Word.Application

...but you'd need to include the Microsoft Word object library in your application.

Now, the only question is... what do you want to do with the new document?

Some additional thoughts:
If you want to work further with your newly created document, I'd advise to create an object for that document, too.

After including the library like g. said, use the following code example:


Sub UseWord()
   Dim WdApp As Word.Application, WdDoc As Word.Document
   
   Set WdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
   WdApp.Visible = True
   
   Set WdDoc = WdApp.Documents.Add  'up to here the same as g.
   With WdDoc
      'Do what you want with the document
      .Range.Text = "That's a new document..."
   End With
   
   
   'Some cleanup, you could close Word via WdApp.Quit if you like, or save the doc
   'WdDoc.Save
   'WdApp.Quit
   Set WdDoc = Nothing
   Set WdApp = Nothing
End Sub

If you just need to create a new document and no further editing of it, why don't you just put an empty document in your app path and then let it copy to where ever you want to be 'created'.
