OLE-Problems with MS WORD in R5

Hy all,

I tried to use embedded WORD documents in R5, but NOTES will not find the
program MS WORD.

I tried this with the MSDOCLIB5 and with some customised databases on
different computers .... but no succes.

Other OLE applications like EXCEL or PowerPoint are running well.

Please let me know if this is a known problem and what I have to do against

Edited text of question.
I would guess if he finds Excel than in generel it is working.
Check if the all path stuff is set correctly. See if you can start Word from cmmmand line in the MSDOS window. And check if you used the correct constant for the Word Object, I recall there were different ones depending on the versionof Word.

Thanks for this info, but I guess, that this is a general problem because I have two different total new installed PCs. I installed MS OFFICE 97 and R5 correct so that I don't think about wrong path. If you can tell me the places where I can check if the pathes are correct, please let me know.
You have to check once if one of the following is mentioned in your notes.ini:

EDITIMP2=MicrosoftWord RTF,0,_IRTF,,.DOC,.RTF,,2,

EDITIMP31=Word for Windows 6.0,0,_IW4W,W4W49F/V0,.DOC,,2,

EDITEXP2=MicrosoftWord RTF,2,_XRTF,,.DOC,.RTF,,4,

EDITEXP23=Word for Windows 6.0,2,_XW4W,W4W49T/V0,.DOC,,2,
