Default importing a newly created Word obj into SQLServer

Hello All,
I am trying to create a Word document on the fly in VS.NET and then import it into a SQLServer 2000 database. I want to do it without having to save the doc object as a file on a server. I've tried using the Stream object, FileStream object, MemoryStream object... I can't figure out how to make any of it work. I'm assuming I need to save it as an image field in the database, but I can't make it happen. Here's how I've started:

        Dim oWord As Word.Application
        Dim oDoc As Word.Document
        Dim oPara As Word.Paragraph
        oWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
        oWord.Visible = True
        oDoc = oWord.Documents.Add
        oPara = oDoc.Content.Paragraphs.Add()
        [code to build out document]

I know that I have succesfully created a doc because I can save it to a directory on the server, but I don't want to store this on the server. What can I do next to successfully get this document object into SQLServer 2000 without first saving it to the server?

Scott- certainly this isn't my area of expertise. However can you use something like oDoc.Content to see the whole file? Perhaps if you write the contents of oDoc.Content out to SQL server that would work.
