Generally you use the Add method to create a new element and include it to a collection. Exact type of the object created depends upon the nature of the collection that the Add method belongs to.

If the collection is of Documents type, the Add method requires no input parameters and creates a new empty document. Then you use its properties and methods to give it the contents and the SaveAs method to store the document to the file.

When adding a new column to the TableWindow you specify the Quantity parameter that defines which column you want to create.

When adding a new row to the Rows collection of the TableWindow, you give a distance from the contour starting point to the point you want to add to the table.

With a Spline object you use the Add method to create a new spline node. The coordinates of the point parameter give the node’s abscissa and ordinate.

When adding a new link to the Links collection, you specify the type of the new link, and the name of the problem file that the link refers to. Unlike the type, targetName can be changed later. Use the fully qualified file path name until you file located in the default folder.
