Hi,

I am embedding MSWord In my application, using OLE automation.

But when I goto save i get the saveas method is not available as the document is been editted in another application.

Code As Follows, from the CanCloseFrame() - In My Document Object


CEmbedWordCntrItem* ViewObj;

ViewObj = ((CEmbedWordView*)pFrame->GetActiveView())
                                   - >m_pSelection;
LPDISPATCH lpDispatch = (ViewObj->GetIDispatch());

_Document doc;
doc.AttachDispatch(lpDispatch);
     

COleVariant covFalse((short)FALSE);
COleVariant vtOptional((long)DISP_E_PARAMNOTFOUND,VT_ERROR);


doc.SaveAs(COleVariant("C:\\DataDoc.doc",VT_BSTR), vtOptional.........)

               
Cheers

Richard

Do you need to release control before this happens?
...like...
   app.SetVisible(TRUE);
   app.SetUserControl(TRUE);

Ended up query interfacing for IPersistFile which impletents a suitable save method.
