Welcome to CodeRanch!

You can't. JavaScript isn't able to interact with the Word document. You'd have to use VBScript or ActiveX or something like that.

Why don't you want to use VBScript?

Thank you Jeanne,

Now, I am able to to do that one by hTbl.Cell(1,2).Range.InsertAfter("<%=Cmpbean.getCompName()%>");
