Hi all,

When I applied the following code it shows the error 'Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.

Dim oTemplate As Word.Template
      Dim tempt_fname As String = Application.StartupPath
      Dim oDoc As Word.Document
      oDoc = oWord.Documents.Add(tempt_fname + "//")

      oTemplate = oWord.ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate()
      Dim rng As Word.Range = oWord.ActiveDocument.Tables(1).Rows(8).Cells(2).Tables(1).Rows(5).Cells(1).Range
        'rng.SetRange(Start:=rng.Start, [End]:=rng.End)
      oTemplate.AutoTextEntries("Question").Insert(Where:=rng, RichText:=True) 'after exicuting this line it is showing error

But when I apply the following code after placed the cursor inside the word doc it is working fine .But I need to create the location dynamically
oTemplate.AutoTextEntries("Question").Insert(Where:=oWord.Selection.Range, RichText:=True)

Pls Help me
Thanks & Regards,

You likely need to call Activate on the ActiveDocument so that it actually has the focus.
