I'm using the following code to save my embedded OLE word object...
-------------------
   iFile = FreeFile
   Open App.Path & "\" & myDOTFile For Binary As iFile
   myOLEObject.FileNumber = iFile
   myOLEObject.SaveToFile iFile
-------------------
The above logic does NOT save back to MSWord format.  Is there anyway to bring a Word document into an OLE container, modify within the OLE container, and save back into Word format?

Hi, guy.  Instead of doing the save to a file, try

myOLEObject.Object.SaveAs "App.Path & "\" & myDOTFile "

where myDOTFile is something like "myDoc.Doc"



The reason is that since the "Object" property of the OLE control is of type Document, it supports the methods of that object.  You don't see them in the popup because of late binding of the object.
