Hi,

To access word u can use either CreateProcess(..)

CreateProcess(
         NULL,
         "C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\Office\\WINWORD.EXE",
         (LPSECURITY_ATTRIBUTES) NULL,
         (LPSECURITY_ATTRIBUTES) NULL,
         TRUE,
         CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE,
         (LPVOID) NULL,
         (LPTSTR) NULL,
         lpStartupInfo, lpProcessInfo ) ;

Please go through the help for each parameter


OR

WinExec(..) this takes the exe name combined with the file name to be opened initially(if needed) and the style. here is the sample code.

WinExec("C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\Office\\WINWORD.EXE",SW_MAXIMIZE);

Here i am just opening the word if u want u just put this is a CString and add it up with the file name u want to open initialy.

Hope this helps u out

Use OLE-Automation to get access to Word. Open the class wizard and create IDispatch classes from the type libraray
'msword8.olb'. You find it on your computer. Then you can start and handle word as you want.
Here is an example, that starts word:

_Application objWordApp;
objWordApp.CreateDispatch("Word.Application");
objWordApp.SetVisible(TRUE);

Hi,

Here is an easy solution, which not only starts Word, but also opens the document you want it to:


ShellExecute(0, 0, "word.exe", "document.doc", 0, SW_NORMAL);
