Don't know specifically about VB6 but here's an example of how to do it in VBA, the syntax should be pretty similar.
Dim wdApp As Object
Dim wdDoc As Object
Dim wdTbl As Object
Dim wdCell As Object
Dim wdTblCl As Object
Dim I As Long

    Set wdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    
    wdApp.Visible = True
    
    Set wdDoc = wdApp.Documents.Add
    
    Set wdTbl = wdDoc.Tables.Add(wdDoc.Range(0, 0), 3, 3)
    
    With wdTbl
        .Borders.OutsideLineStyle = 1 ' wdLineStylesingle
        .Borders.InsideLineStyle = 1 '
        
        For I = 1 To .Rows.Count - 1
            For Each wdTblCl In .Rows(I).Cells
                wdTblCl.Range.InsertAfter Int(Rnd * 100) + 10
            Next wdTblCl
        Next I

        
        For Each wdTblCl In .Rows(I).Cells
            wdTblCl.Formula Formula:="=SUM(Above)"
        Next wdTblCl
                
    End With
    
    Set wdDoc = Nothing
    
    Set wdApp = Nothing

I used the following, but to no avail

oTable.Cell(18, 2).Formula Formula:="SUM(Above)"

You appear to be missing the = before SUM.
 oTable.Cell(18, 2).Formula Formula:="=SUM(Above)"
