Please search in MSDN with "HOWTO: Use Automation to Run a Word Macro with Arguments"

(Don't forget to put quotes both sides)

You will get similar operations using word from that article

I don't believe he is wanting to automate word 2000, I think he wants to just read/write to a Word 2000 file.

Is this a question regarding the format of a Word 2000 file?

Undertanding word file format is really an overkill when you can use Word to do the work for you, why is there automation afterall.

Here is a simple way to use Word
Import word type library, and add atleast the classes used in following code, _Application, Documents, _Document, Range etc.

COleVariant var;
_Application application;

var.vt = VT_ERROR;
var.scode = DISP_E_PARAMNOTFOUND;

application.CreateDispatch(_T("word.application"));
application.SetVisible(Visible);

Documents documents = application.GetDocuments();
_Document document = documents.Add(var,var);

Range range = document.Range(var,var);
range.InsertAfter(_T("hello"));void CMyReport::Close()

COleVariant savechanges = 1L;
application.Quit(savechanges,var,var);

True enough, automating Word is one of the easiest ways to read/write a Word file, but he didn't say he has Word 2000 anywhere. He may not have Word 2000. Since he is writing a program, he may distribute the program to people who do not have Word 2000.

That is my concern..

So, if you/your userbase have Word 2000, the best way to go is written above by others. If you do not, it will get more complex. Very complex in fact.

Here is an explanation of the Word 97 file format:

It that link doesn't scare you, and you really want to pursue opening and reading/writing Word files with your own program, this link:
http://www.wvware.com/wvInfo.html
contains much information on the Microsoft Office formats, including Word 2000, as well as freeware libraries/products to aid in your task.
