I get an instance of Word using MSWord := CreateOleObject('Word.Basic'); then I lose my instance when I call MSWord.FileCloseAll(2); I must trap the OLEError, invoke and a new instance. Why and what can I do to avoid that.

Hi, I just quickly created a little app that
 opened word 97 from delphi
 and inserted a 'hello' in any open document from delphi
 then made a call to closeAll(2), which closed all the open
 docs,


 At this point you say delphi has lost it's instance of OLEWord?

 So now if I pushed opened a new doc , and pushed the delphi  button to insert 'hello' you say it would give an error or
 because the instance is lost.

 Well I successfully inserted 'hello' ... I think the answer lies
in the version of word, you are using. or maybe the operating system or something.... (how I hate computers)...

As I say it worked fine on my machine (95,Delphi2)

Cheers,
Rob.

It could be.  I'm using Office95 and that has ... what? Word7? I've heard that they fixed some OLE problems.
