Using Word Objects to save Form Data

My form has data in the following controls:
text1
text2
combo1
combo2
combo3
picture1
Hello,
I would like to format this data into a Word Document and save it
out as a .doc file just like it is arranged on my form.  Can you
provide a piece of sample code that creates a new word document,
copies the form data to the document -- including the picture from
the picture control -- and then saves the document as a .doc file?
 Can you give advice on how to position the data in the word document
so that it matches their position on my form?

Hi netstallone,

this is the code i put behind a commandbutton

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim strPicture As String
Dim oWord As Object
'Dim oWord As Word.Application
Dim oDoc As Document
 
  strPicture = "C:\temp\pic.bmp"
  'save to file
  Call SavePicture(Picture1.Picture, strPicture)
 
  'create the word object
  Set oWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
  'Set oWord = New Word.Application
  'make it visible to see what happens
  oWord.Visible = True
  'add a new document
  Set oDoc = oWord.Documents.Add
  oDoc.Select
  'insert all the stuff
  With Selection
    .TypeText Form1.Text1.Text
    .TypeParagraph
    .TypeParagraph
    .TypeText Form1.Text2.Text
    .TypeParagraph
    .TypeParagraph
    .TypeText Form1.Combo1.Text
    .TypeParagraph
    .TypeParagraph
    .TypeText Form1.Combo2.Text
    .TypeParagraph
    .TypeParagraph
    .TypeText Form1.Combo3.Text
    .TypeParagraph
    .TypeParagraph
    .InlineShapes.AddPicture strPicture, False, True
  End With
  'delete the temp pic file
  Kill strPicture
End Sub

a sample can be picked up here (only 3K form + project file)

You will have to go to the Project|References menu and select the option called something like Microsoft Word Object Library 9.0 (or whatever version you have) before the code above will work.

Hi Netstallone,

OK first a small list of what you want to do exactly

-an VB application with some fields
-those fields have to be transferred to a Word Document
-then you want that document to be saved automatically?
-and have the document still open so the user can do some other things with it?

Hello Mr.Briuntje,
you're almost correct i want the user to save data what they write into text-bx,combo-bx,& also picture to be saved.The way u submitted your zip sample.So when they want to send that saved file it can be done.Actually it should be saved exactly in that format as i'll create the form with txt-bx,cmb-bx,e.t.c....I hope i clarified in explaining my problem;if furthur anything u didn't get do mention me.

Bye,
Take care of ur Back.
