My VB application uses the "WebBrowser" Control.
I used the "Navigate" Method in order to Surf to a Word Document(.Doc). now I want (from my VB application) to create a button that access methods from the Word Object (for example, the print method).

Please don't send me workarounds, code samples will be appreciated.

What other types of functions are you wanting to access?

For say printing, you can use the WebBrowser control's ExecWB command to do tasks such as printing...

WebBrowser1.ExecWB OLECMDID_PRINT, OLECMDEXECOPT_DODEFAULT

Try this:
'set a reference to microsoft word x object library
option explicit

dim wdoc as word.document
' in Document_complete event of webbrowser paste this:
if (pdisp is webbrowser1.object)
   set wdoc= webbrowser1.document
   'example of how to access Word DOM:
   wdoc.PrintPreview
   ' and so on...
end if
