Default adding VBA code to VB

I'm quite new to VB and I am trying to create a program that requires a line of VB code and a line of VBA code to do what it needs to do.

basically, I need to launch microsoft word, then run this VBA code:
Options.DefaultFilePath (wdWorkgroupTemplatesPath) = "\\server\share\workgrouptemplates"

the trouble is, it isn't recognizing the syntax for the vba stuff. I was wondering if I need to preface that code with some kind of switch or introduction that tells vb we're speaking in VBA now.

In can add a reference to the word object library. (Project/References)

Then you can do the following:

Dim woApp as new Word.Application

set woApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")

If you typ woApp. you should get the available functions.
