There was an earlier posting that was designed around Cold Fusion. Not helpful for me. Need to know how to add text and tables to a created Word Doc from JavaScript, including adding values to the tables. Thanks.

This  samples are in VBscript but they can be easily translated into the Jscript.
You may use free online VBscript to Jscript converter found at

Thanks for the input.  The reference did help provide the key, but as you said, I did have to work through the get the proper solution. The link to the scriptConverter did help some but it didn't do much converting of the VB. What did suprise me is that a common "For" statement wasn't converted at all. Just my thoughts.  Don't misunderstand, the mentioned links are great resources.  
Your great, mitb. Thanks again.
