make a copy of a word document under a new name in vb6

I am using an ocx to manipulate word documents from within vb6.  Unfortunately, there is no function to copy a word document creating the same document under a different name.  There is a function to copy text information to an existing word file.  I need this to be able to create a "template" document to perform mail merge functions, and also to move data to the beginning of the second document, such as name / address information.

Thanks for any help here.

Thanks, I will give it a try.  Seems so simple, guess I thought filecopy was for text type files.
