Visual Basic "Error! AutoText Entry not defined" error

I have the following code:
.Range.Fields.Add(.Range, Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdFieldType.wdFieldEmpty, "AUTOTEXT  ""Page X of Y"" ", True)

It worked correctly using Word 2002 SP3. However, when creating a Word document to Word 2007, "Error! AutoText Entry not defined" appears instead of "Page 1 of 8", for example.

If all you want to do is add a Page X of Y in the lower left page footer, here is the code to do it.  Let me know if you require more.
    ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate.BuildingBlockEntries("Bold Numbers 1"). _
        Insert Where:=Selection.Range, RichText:=True

Thanks - it will take me about a week to get to this issue - priorities have changed so this is now on the back burner.
