I open a MS-Word document by (Delphi4):

try
    word := CreateOleObject('Word.Application');
except

end;
word.Visible := True;
word.Documents.Add;

Next I would like to open a style (memo.dot) and then set the top margin to 1.5cm and the left margin to 2.5cm

Can you give me the code for this?

Thanks in advance

Hi,
you can open

try
  word := GetActiveOleObject('Excel.Application');
except
  word := CreateOleObject('Word.Application');
end;

Word.Documents.Open ('C:\My Documents\memo.dot');

word.Visible := True;


//Set the margin in the Memo.DOT

1. u can open as a document the 'memo.dot' as a file and u will get a new document based on the dot .

2. I don't think that u can change the page setup
