I am trying to use Word Automation. I am about to write an app that "links" to Word, so that the user can type into my app but still use all of the Word features like Auto-correct and related features. This would be a dialog app and look to the user as if they are just typing into a standard or rich edit box. I am developing with MS VC++ 5.0, sp3. Is this possible? Any pointers on getting started. Anyplace I can look to find out the possible Automation/COM/ActiveX backend to Word? How to use it, etc.. I have searched MS's website and have not found much and have been unable to find a book that does provides the information. Everything that is even remotely close is in VB. I do not use/know VB. A pointer to a good book, in C++, would also be helpful.
