I want to drag-and-drop a Word Document 2003/2007 control in my form by .NET Framework. Like we do for PDF in the following screenshot. If you see the highlighted text, it is Adobe PDF Reader. I can show the PDF documents in this control in my form.
I am creating new documents from templates and then saving them as docx files.My understanding is that when I go to my saveas method I should be able to have the wdFormatXMLDocument as one of my fileformat options.However I don't.I have to use the numerical equivalent of 12.I have imported the Word 2007 interop and have all the methods at my fingertips there, but can't seem to find this particular option.
I have been trying to figure out how to read paragraph content which exists a heading. The heading itself is part of the table of contents. The heading will have a particular style (say Heading 1). For example: "Introduction" is a entry in Table of content with style Heading 1. I want to read content under heading "Introduction" but not any more content (i.e not content under sub headings of Introduction) I have been trying to do this using styles/style, TableofContent, Paragraphs/Paragraph,Range. Still cannot come up with a effective solution. I am working in VB.NET in VS 2010. I am using the word 2007 object model (office 2007 interop) as [URL]
I try to make a find/replace in a existing word document using vb.net. Here's my code:
When running the code I get a AccessViolationException on the codeline where the Range.Find is called... I use VSTD2008 and Office 2007 on Windows 7. I have also tried running the code on a machine with Office 2003 which was successful. So if anybody could tell me what I have to do differently that I get this working with office 2007 I'd be very glad!
I want to insert (store) a Word 2007 document into an SQL database field. I've previously done this with PDF files into an 'image' datatype field without problems. I can add the original document and retrieve it for viewing using Filestream as follows:
To add the file (where 'strPdfFile' is the file and 'myImageBuffer' is added to the field) Dim myStream As FileStream = New FileStream(strPdfFile, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read)
This also works with a Word .doc file (substituting the file extension). With a .docx file however, when taking the ByteArray back out of the database and re-creating the document, there is a problem opening it with Word 2007. An error message says the file is corrupt but offers to recover the file, which it does successfully.
I know docx is OpenXML but in this case I'm not interested in the data structure (as such), I just want to store it. I guess I should be using a different method (Serialization?) but not sure which. I would also like to keep the field DataType (image) if I can.
The application I support is creating an amalgamted Word document by copying couple of Word documents in one document right after each other. The problem is the format of the some of the fields of the document that gets appended is changed in amalgamated document while the amalgamated document is the copy of AppendDocument (imagine if we have one document to copy in the amalgamated document)
I have developed a WinForm Application with VB.Net (VS2010) having Office 2010 Professional Installed, and it is 64-bit Windows 7 Platform. The program opens a .doc and .rtf format document, and attempts to save it in htm format. I am using following commands:
Dim sFilePath as String = "C:ABCfile.doc" Dim oApp As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application Dim oDoc As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document
All goes fine with development and running on development PC, but when I publish it for offline installation, and deploy it on Client PC having Windows XP with Office 2007, it gives error on oDoc.SaveAs2 line, and program crashes.
We have an interactive windows based application written in VB .Net 2010. It uses Word Object to display documents in MS Word. We have a form with a button. When the button is clicked we open the Word document and maximize the Word Windowstate. When we have the Visual Studio Tool running, the Word Document is maximized and has focus, even if we are running the exe from the bin folder outside of the tool. However, if Visual Studio is not running and we run the exe, focus remains on the original form window and the document stays in the task bar.
I have a VB.net application that gets data off our server with ODBC and populates and saves a Word Document. When I try to deploy it to another computer it will get the data just fine and populate the first document, but it will crash before saving it. I've installed the .net framework 4.0, Microsoft Data Access Components, and the Microsoft ODBC .net data Provider. The error code is 0xC0000005, which is from what I can see is called an "Access Violation Exception." It works fine on my computer.
write a VB code that will open Word, create a Word document then, upon exiting Word, automatically have the file name save in a specific folder based on an Excel worksheet cell value? In other-words, if...let's say... if a worksheet cell value is 09-1, can a code be written to save a document as c:/NBI/Docs/09-1.doc ? Or am I going WAY beyond the scope of a VB nubee...?
I have document, with numerous pages, that will populate at key locations using a UserForm and bookmarks. One of the pages in the document may need to be repeated. In other words, one of the pages may need to be populated more than once (and inserted successively in the document).
The troublesome page has bookmarks that will need to be repopulated with different information for every new instance within that same document.
I am considering making a table with the verbage in the "Troublesome Document" located in a Table. When I need to repopulate a new instance of that page, I think I should:
1. populate the document 2. copy and paste the wording in a new page 3. insert the new page (without bookmarks yet maintaining formatting) before the "Trouble Document" 4. repeat steps 1-3 for every necessary instance 5. delete the "Trouble Document" with the Table
I'm trying to read a word document for the purpose of obtaining a word count, I realise Word has built in functionality for presenting a word count but I want to write a little app that will omit certain parts of the document from the word count.
So far I have tried this code to open the document but I am getting an error 'Word.Document cannot be found' and 'Microsoft.Office.Interop cannot be found'. I have added a reference to the Microsoft Office 12.0 Object Library under the COM tab. I have Office 2007 installed and I'm using VB2005.
Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop Dim appWord As New Microsoft.Office.Core.Application Dim docWord As New Word.Document docWord = appWord.Documents.Open("c: est.doc")
My application crashes when trying to save a word document as text. The error at SaveAs is "Type mismatch. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80020005 (DISP_E_TYPEMISMATCH))" I am opening and manipulating a Word 2003 Document (using Word 2007) and then trying to save it as a text file.
We are opening a Word document from our Visual Basic 2010 application using the Word object. When we run our application under Windows Server 2008 the document name is truncated in the main window title for the document. This is not the case when we run our application under Windows XP. Is there a way to prevent this truncation under Windows Server 2008?Mary Leathem
I have been perusing the internet in search of the best way to accomplish this, but have had no luck. If someone here has experience with Office add-ins, I'm not asking for a solution by any means, just assistance with which direction to take. The software I'm working on is primarily in VB.Net and C#; IDE is VS2008 Here's my scenario:
It's not a coding problem. I can't seem to copy my coding in to word without it losing all of the colour. Is there any easy way that I can copy and paste this code in to word without it losing all of the formatting?
I'm converting a VB6 app (that works fine) to VB.Net app for work using Visual Studio 2008 Express. I have Word 2003 SP3 on my laptop. I need to open an existing Word document; edit it; and save the changes. Now in VB.Net, when I try to do 'Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word', only Microsoft.Office.Core shows up as a choice. I have Microsoft Office 11.0 Object Libary referenced. I've been searching the internet for hours but can't find any thing that helps. Can anyone here point out what I'm doing wrong? How do I get ...Interop.Word to show up as a choice?
What would be the best approach for creating MS Word 2007 documents with vb.net that contains signature lines? I am currently in the planning phase of a project and I'm trying to gather some info. The idea would be to upgrade this program we have already developed(using vb.net) to generate .docx files that contain signature lines that are created progmatically. The signatures would be added later by the user through a workflow in SharePoint I just need to create the document with the lines. I have seen different tutorials on creating word docs, but not sure which method would be the best for what I'm doing. Where should I start looking?
Also, there doesnt seem to be too many tutorials on adding signatures line through code, more specifically how to automate the signature line setup. e.g. Who should sign, signers name, signers email address. How do I set these paramaters through code?
I am maintaining a program that automatically does a mail merge based on a client list. Using earlier versions of Microsoft Word, such as 2003, I did not have any trouble simply using the MailingLabel.CreateNewDocument() function, which takes a MAILING LABEL ID as its first parameter.The particular ID I'm now having trouble with in Word 2007 is "5160" which is an Avery label that should print three labels across the page (and it did in Word 2003). In Word 2007, it now prints 4 labels across.
From the research I've already done, apparently this is because the number of label templates has greatly expanded since the release of Word 2003, and now Word 2007 has a new set of label IDs that can be used with the MailingLabel.CreateNewDocumentByID() function. In the case of the Avery 5160 label, its new ID to be used for Word 2007 with the MailingLabel.CreateNewDocumentByID() function is "1359804671" and I have NO IDEA how that was calculated or where it was found.
I can't find the list of IDs to be used with the MailingLabel.CreateNewDocumentByID() function for Word 2007 anywhere. I read in a Microsoft Developer's blog post that you can calculate the new ID by using the following formula:
Label ID = (vendor id << 24) | product id
Unfortunately, that doesn't make any mathematical sense to me as I don't know what "<<" and "|" are supposed to represent in mathematical terms. Can anyone tell me where to find or how to calculate (based on the vendor id and product id) the mailing label ID I need to use with the MailingLabel.CreateNewDocumentByID() function?
I want to open a number of RTF documents in Word 2007, one at a time, in a VB .NET program. Here is a small representative sample of my code:
Imports Word = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word Public Shared WordApp As Object = Nothing Public Shared WordAppInit As Boolean = False Public Shared Sub ExecWord() If Not WordAppInit Then On Error Resume Next [Code] .....
Sometimes it hangs on one of the WordApp or WordDoc statements in TestSub1; sometimes it gets all the way through TestSub1 without problems but then hangs in TestSub2. Often it leaves an instance of WinWord running so that I have to kill it in Task Manager or reboot the system.
I need to run some Word 2007 mailmerge macros on Windows 2003 terminal services. This is something we've done fine with Word 2000 but the 2007 macros won't work.I understand the issue being the 'pointers' in the macro to h:temp (h being the home drive for each user on the terminal serve). Word 2007 macros only seem to like c:, is that correct or is there a way to get the 2007 macros to use something other than c:.
I'm developing an Outlook 2007 Add In with Visual Studio 2010 (VB).In the project I have a routine that opens, saves and closes Word 2007 documents.While the routine is executing, if I open Word 2007 application I see all the documents opening and closing, making it impossible for me to work in Word 2007.How can I launch the routine using a unique Word 2007 process?
I'm developing a program that handles money, and there is a pre-made excel spreadsheet that I am to be transfering data into specific cells. How can I go about telling my program to write specifc data into specific cell numer in excel? Also, how can I get my program to write into specific areas of a MS Word Template (my program will generate letter with the same template just different names/addresses/valus)?
I would like to know if it is possible to have dynamic data in word (2003) documents. Let me explain, I will start with what we do now and how I would like to fix or change it.We have approx 35 , we will call them divisions for the time being, and each division has a folder on the shared drive. We have approx 700 ,lets call them customers for the time, and each customer has a folder located in the associated division folder on the shared Drive. (\DriveDivision#1Customer#1...\DriveDivision#32Customer#348 etc etc etc .)There is a MSword2003 document that exists in every Customer Folder that contains data about that customer (including but not limited too.Contacts, Notes, Customer #s etc) We will call this the DeCust.doc file for the time. A lot of the information in these DeCust.doc files can exist in another customers DeCust.doc files such as a contact name and address. One of the problems we run into is that a contact (lets say Smiths Plumbing Service) may send an email to notify of an address change and the person receiving the email will change the contacts address in the DeCust.doc files of the customers that that employee (employee #1) works with but, there are other DeCust.doc files in other customer folders that the address never gets changed in. When a different employee (employee #2) opens a deCust.doc file of a different customer that he/she works with the contact (Smiths Plumbing Service) the address of this deCust.doc: file is wrong (not updated).
I would like to solve this problem. I have already developed a Demo VB/Database application to be used in lieu of the DeCust.doc files but, I have met Way too much resistance in getting people to switch from using individual docs in each customer folder to using a database program. With that being said, I started wondering if there was a way to Link/populate/fill the contact information in these DeCust.Doc files to a central Database or such that when someone changes an address for a contact it is simultaneously changed in all the other DeCust.doc files.
