HTML2WORD - inserting page numbers

I am producing a word document from generated HTML using the CF tag WORD2HTML.

In developing I first create a WORD doc with word, the middle bit being where the generated data will go.

I then use WORD itself and save as html.

I then chop this html up into two parts - everything up to the data section (header.cfm) and the end which is everything AFTER the data (footer.cfm).

I keep these two files to wrap around the data which I generate as a file (data.cfm)

Then usin g CFFILE I join these 3 files together and use this html file to feed to the CF tag, WORD2HTML to output a WORD file.

So far, so  good. BUT, I want to include page numbers. Has anyone any idea as to how I can do this?

PS I left off the crusial part of the error message
The cause of this exception was that: coldfusion.runtime.com.ComObjectInstantiationException: An exception occurred when instantiating a Com object..

OK. I manage to connect to the com object. Burt now I get

The selected method Move was not found.  
There are no methods with the specified method name and argument types. Please check your function and try again.  

With the code from the source suggested above - see

<cftry>    <CFOBJECT
        ACTION="CONNECT"
        CLASS="{000209FF-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}"
        NAME="objWord"
        TYPE="COM">
connect
<CFCATCH>

    <CFOBJECT
        ACTION="CREATE"
        CLASS="{000209FF-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}"
        NAME="objWord"
        TYPE="COM">
create
</CFCATCH>
</CFTRY>


<CFSCRIPT>

    // Open the doc
    objDocs = objWord.Documents;
    objDoc = objDocs.Open("d:\htdocs\s+n\fred.doc ");

// Get the 1st section's 1st footer's range object
    objSecs = objDoc.Sections;
    objSec1 = objSecs.Item(1);
    objSec1Footers = objSec1.Footers;
    objSec1Footer1 = objSec1Footers.Item(1);
    objRange = objSec1Footer1.Range;

    // Set the paragraph format
    // Values for alignment are {0=Left,1=Center,2=Right,3=Justify}
    objParaFormat = objRange.ParagraphFormat;
    objParaFormat.Alignment = 0;

    // Set a right-tab at 6 inches
    // Tab positions are in points, where 72 points = 1 inch
    // Arguments to the TabStops.Add function:
    //    Position: 6 inches * 72 points/inch = 432 points
    //    Alignment: values include {0=Left,1=Center,2=Right}
    objTabStops = objParaFormat.TabStops;
    objTabStops.ClearAll();
    objTabStops.Add(432,2);

    // Insert the page number
    // Page number is field type 33
    // Story is unit type 6
    objRange.Collapse(0);
    objFields = objRange.Fields;
    objFields.Add(objRange,33);
    objFields.Move(6);

    // Insert the footer's text
    objRange.InsertAfter("    Confidential and Proprietary");
    objRange.Collapse(0);
    objRange.Select();
    objSelection = objWord.Selection;
    objSelection.TypeText(Chr(9));
    objSelection.TypeText("Property of XYZ Corp.");


    // Exit
    objDoc.Close();
    objWord.Quit();
