2.00 2.00a 2.00a-CD 2.00b 2.00c


The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c


There is a documentation error on page 242 of the “Using WordBasic” book by WexTech Systems and Microsoft. The example of the InsertObject command incorrectly reads:

InsertObject “Word Document”

There should be no space between “Word” and “Document.” The syntax example results in the following error message:

Word cannot locate the server application for Word Document objects. Install the server application with the Setup program.

The correct syntax for the InsertObject command is:

InsertObject “WordDocument”


InsertObject .Class = “WordDocument”
