I am new to VBA and am trying to debug my code, which is attempting to move thousands of rows of data into a large Word file.  I am struggling with the code to gather my data from excel and paste it into word.  I do not want the final product in table form, but rather as a list with titles and subtitles.  Any help would be much appreciated.  Below is the code:

Sub XltoWd()
Dim wordapp As Object
Dim data As Object

Set wordapp = CreateObject("Word.Application")

With wordapp
    .Visible = True
    .Documents.Add
    With .Selection
    .Font.Size = 14
    .Font.Bold = True
    .ParagraphFormat.Alignment = 1
    .TypeText Text:="Third-Party Report Excerpts"
    .TypeParagraph
    .TypeParagraph
    End With
 .ActiveDocument.SaveAs Filename:="C:\Documents and Settings\dhansen\My Documents\Last Try.doc"
End With

ActiveDocument.Range("a1").Select
Set data = Sheets("sheet1").Range("a1")

Records = ActiveDocument.CountA(Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A:A"))
For i = 1 To Records
'       Assign current data to variables
        Title = data.Offset(i - 1, 0).Value
        Date = data.Offset(i - 1, 1).Value
        Analyst = data.Offset(i - 1, 2).Value
        Doc = data.Offset(i - 1, 3).Value
        Issue = data.Offset(i - 1, 4).Value
        Notes = data.Offset(i - 1, 5).Value
        Quote = data.Offset(i - 1, 6).Value

            With wordapp.Selection
                .Font.Size = 12
                .Font.Bold = False
                .ParagraphFormat.Alignment = 0
                .TypeText Text:="==="
                .TypeParagraph
                .TypeParagraph
                .TypeText Text:="Title:" & vbTab & Title
                .TypeParagraph
                .TypeText Text:="Date:" & vbTab & Format(Date, "YYYY-MM-DD")
                .TypeParagraph
                .TypeText Text:="Analyst:" & vbTab & Analyst
                .TypeParagraph
                .TypeText Text:="Document No.:" & vbTab & Document
                .TypeParagraph
                .TypeText Text:="Category:" & vbTab & Issue
                .TypeParagraph
                .TypeText Text:="Summary:" & vbTab & Notes
                .TypeParagraph
                .TypeText Text:="Excerpt:" & vbTab & Quote
                .TypeParagraph
                .TypeParagraph
            End With
    Next i

wordapp.Quit
Set wordapp = Nothing
End Sub

Hi Dave,

I have set Option Explicit in the declarations section. This ensures that all variables are declared.
I've used early binding, which makes development easier because it allows Auto Quick Info & Auto List Members to work.
I've added an underscore to the Date variable because Date is a reserved word in VBA. I've done it to Document as well, thought it's probably not necessary in the Excel context.
Selection has been changed to Range for added the data to the Word document.
The Save has been moved to the end.

Option Explicit
Sub XltoWd()
    Dim wordapp As Word.Application
    Dim Records As Integer
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim data As Excel.Range
    Dim Title As String
    Dim Date_ As String
    Dim Analyst As String
    Dim Doc As String
    Dim Issue As String
    Dim Notes As String
    Dim Quote As String
    Dim Document_ As String
    Dim wdRange As Word.Range
    'Set wordapp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    Set wordapp = New Word.Application
    With wordapp
        .Visible = True
        .Documents.Add

        .InsertAfter Text:="Third-Party Report Excerpts"
        .InsertParagraphAfter
        .InsertParagraphAfter
        End With
    End With
   
    'ActiveSheet.Range("a1").Select
    Set data = Sheets("sheet1").Range("a1")
   
    Records = WorksheetFunction.CountA(Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A:A"))
