Try this, the documentation indicates the BeforeRow parm needs to be passed as a Row datatype, not a number.

set newrow = tbl.rows.add(tbl.Rows(3))

Open in new window

Note that for most things, once the environment is established (Word Application object and/or Word Documentation object etc.,  VBScript and VBA are the same.
