How do I adapt the following so that it counts only the rows in the bookmark and adds a row within the bookmark:
Dim objShell, strPath, wd
Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
Set wd = CreateObject("Word.Application")
wd.visible = true
strPath = objShell.CurrentDirectory
wd.Documents.Open strPath & "/MakeTableNew.docx"
set tbl  = wd.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks(1).Range.Tables(1)
msgbox tbl.rows.count  'returns 6, should return 3
tbl.rows.add()  'adds row to end of table, should add row to bookmark area
wd.ActiveDocument.SaveAs(strPath & "/MakeTableNewNew.docx")
wd.Quit

The purpose of this is that I plan to do the following steps:
Add bookmarks to a table representing a header, group header, multiple detail and footer regions similar to a report tool
Populate each region with financial data.
