 Set docNew = Documents.Add 
 docNew.Paragraphs.Format.TabStops.Add _ 
 'List all the converters in the FileConverters collection 
 With docNew.Content 
 .InsertAfter "Name" & vbTab & "Number" 
 For Each cnvFile In FileConverters 
 If cnvFile.CanSave = True Then 
 .InsertAfter cnvFile.FormatName & vbTab & _ 
 End If 
 End With
