How to use export filters with QuickReport?

An example from the help file:

procedure MyForm.ButtonClick(Sender : TObject);
var
  AExportFilter : TQRHTMLFilter;
begin
   AExportFilter := TQRHTMLFilter.Create('REPORT.HTM');
   try
      MyReport.ExportToFilter(AExportFilter)
   finally
      AExportFilter.Free;
   end;
end;

One problem, the TQRHTMLDocumentFilter.Create method requires a varibable of type TComponent, not string. My compiler complains: 'Incompatible types: TComponent and String'.

And indeed, looking into the source files, the construcror fomr TQRHTMLFilter is defined as 'constructor Create(AOwner : TComponent); override;'

Please help.
