The code below adds Text and creates a Table.  The code add the text "Appendix A" & "Total items: 10"
The problem is that it will add the text.  When the table is created, it overwrites the text.
How can I add the table under/after the text?
I thought "ActiveDocument.Content.InsertParagraphAfter" would fix it.

strAppendixAName = "Appendix_A.docx"
strAppendixAPath = CurrentProject.Path
strAppendixAFullPath = strAppendixAPath & "\" & "Appendix_A.docx"

inttblAppendixAWorking =10

Dim objWord
Dim objDoc
Dim objSelection

Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
Set objDoc = objWord.Documents.Add
Set objSelection = objWord.Selection

objWord.Visible = True
objDoc.SaveAs (strAppendixAFullPath)


objSelection.TypeText ("Appendix A" & vbCrLf & "Total items:  " & inttblAppendixAWorking & vbCrLf & vbCrLf)


intRows = inttblAppendixAWorking
intCols = 2

 'Create Table
 Set tblAppA = objDoc.Tables.Add(Range:=objDoc.Range, _
                                                    NumRows:=intRows, _
tblAppA.Range.Font.Size = 12
tblAppA.Borders.Enable = True

tblAppA.Columns.PreferredWidthType = wdPreferredWidthPoints
tblAppA.Columns(1).PreferredWidth = CentimetersToPoints(3)
tblAppA.Columns(2).PreferredWidth = CentimetersToPoints(14#)
