Hi,
I'm trying to write some texts at bookmarks in a word document.
I'm using delphi 3.02 and office pro 97 sr1.
I have a doc called test.doc the file has some text in it and has a bookmark
called 'test'.
--------------------------
I have the following proc :

PROCEDURE TForm3.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
VAR
     WordDoc : oleVariant;
BEGIN
     TRY
          WordDoc := GetActiveOLEObject('Word.Application');
     EXCEPT
          WordDoc := CreateOLEObject('Word.Application');
     END;

     WordDoc.Documents.Open('c:\temp\test.doc');
     if WordDoc.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Exists('test') then
     begin
     (* it is working until here, the file opens correctly and it says that
        the bookmark is existing, but with the following line at runtime
        I have a error that says something like "bookmarks is not a valid method"
        I supose my calling method must be wrong, the syntax looks like what I
        saw in word basic, except that it doesn't work. *)
       
          WordDoc.ActiveDocument.bookmarks('test').select;
     end;


//     WordDoc.Insert('This is the first line'#13);
//     WordDoc.Insert('This is the second line'#13);
//     WordDoc.FileSaveAs('c:\temp\test.doc', 3);
END;
--------------------------
What's wrong guys ?
What I try to do, is go to bookmark and insert some text. Maybe there is another
technic. Anyway I'd like to know what is wrong here.
Any hint someone ?

Yo,
here's some code that does the job. I used the VBA-Editor and its class browser to get the approptiate methods and properties.

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  Word,
  WordDoc : OLEVariant;
  Index   : LongInt;
begin
  try
    Word := GetActiveOLEObject('Word.Application');
  except
    Word := CreateOLEObject('Word.Application');
  end;
  WordDoc := Word.Documents.Open('c:\temp\test.doc');
  if WordDoc.Bookmarks.Exists('test') then
   begin
     Index := 1;
     while Index <= WordDoc.Bookmarks.Count
      do if WordDoc.Bookmarks.Item(Index).Name = 'test'
          then Break;
     WordDoc.Bookmarks.Item(Index).Select;
     Word.Selection.InsertAfter('This is the first line'#13);
     Word.Selection.InsertAfter('This is the second line'#13);
     WordDoc.SaveAs('c:\temp\test2.doc', 3);
   end;
end;

Have fun,

Hi,
You only get C, cause there was some work on your code.
by the way the answer to my question was :
 WordDoc.Bookmarks.Item('test').Select;

Anyway thanks for the help.
