i have externally created a word document from my vb application, and it has opened word, added a document (documents.add) and written stuff to the selection.

how do you save the document without a prompt as a certain filename... i dont want it to be called "document 1.txt" or anything like that. OR... if i MUST have a prompt, (as in, if i just go.. documents.save true, true) how do i allow it to overwrite files already there?

thanx

yes... i want to save it as a specific filename without prompting

also, how do you kill off the application when you are finished with it... is there a Word.Application.Close?

This code saves without prompting the user and quit.

Private Sub Command2_Click()
Dim objWord As Word.Application

    Set objWord = New Word.Application
   
    With objWord
        .Visible = True
        .Documents.Add
        .ActiveDocument.Select
        .Selection.InsertAfter "Hello"
        .ActiveDocument.SaveAs App.Path & "\t.doc"
        .Quit False
    End With
    Set objWord = Nothing
End Sub

wdPromptToSaveChanges, or wdSaveChanges

Change the below Prompt to save without prompt :

On Error GoTo errorHandler
ActiveDocument.Close SaveChanges:=wdPromptToSaveChanges, OriginalFormat:=wdPromptUser
errorHandler:
If Err = 4198 Then MsgBox "Document was not closed"

to kill the Application use :
goWord.quit

set goWord = Nothing

Above is just the command to close opened word.  Add some coding to check activedocument.

I never played with tabs by automation so can't help on this one.

About your horizontal lines: which lines???
