Hi Guys, Girls and those not quite sure !!!!

I was wandering if anyone could help?, I have created a word document via an OLE Container and I need to fax it out through Turbo Powers AsyncProfessionals Fax Component.

The problem I have is that the VCL cannot convert Word Documents and as I do not want to loose any formatting etc, is it possible to create a Bmp of the Word Document?

Cheers for any help, I appreciate it.

WordDocument (in OLE Container) -> Bmp ??????

It look like very difficult to do inside container, but you can show it on screen then catch it into BMP.

I'm not familiar with the Fax component but I assume that you are creating the doc then saving it to a file then passing that file to the Fax component.

Can the Fax handle any other file format that Word can also accomodate e.g. RTF?

Check in Word under File | Sendto. There should be FAX here. I recorded a macro, got something like SendFax....
Checked in the imported Word tlb, found: procedure SendFax(const Address: WideString; var Subject: OleVariant); safecall; (of _application).

So you can make Word Fax your letter without losing anything. If you don't especially need that FAX component you named, I would consider this option.

indeed, or save doc and have FAX component open and handle it. Files can be saved as:
               wdFormatDocument =              0;
                wdFormatTemplate =              1;
                wdFormatText =                  2;
                wdFormatTextLineBreaks =        3;
                wdFormatDOSText =               4;
                wdFormatDOSTextLineBreaks =     5;
                wdFormatRTF =                   6;
                wdFormatUnicodeText =           7;

with:

//all vars OleVariant
      Name                     := FileName;
      FileFormat               := wdFormatDocument; // Format;
      LockComments             := False;
      Password                 := '';
      AddToRecentFiles         := True;
      WritePassword            := '';
      ReadOnlyRecommended      := False;
      EmbedTrueTypeFonts       := False;
      SaveNativePictureFormat  := False;
      SaveFormsData            := False;
      SaveAsAOCELetter         := False;
      FWord80.ActiveDocument.SaveAs(Name, FileFormat, LockComments, Password, AddToRecentFiles, WritePassword, ReadOnlyRecommended, EmbedTrueTypeFonts, SaveNativePictureFormat, SaveFormsData, SaveAsAOCELetter);
