Hi Andraw,

   I have the same problem of error ( ActiveX component can't create object: 'Word.Document' ). You said you have changed the setting and it is running ok now, can you teach me what should I do in the DCOMCNFG and what setting to be done in the security under the internet option?
   I will appreciate your help and thanks. i hope to hearing from you soon, thanks.

Hi, Eric,
Did you solve your problem? All I do when I try to use ActiveX control is: in the internet explorer,
Tools ->Internet Options ->Security->Customer Level, check "Download Unsigned ActiveX Control" from disable to Enable, try it again.
Hope it can help
