how can I read a MS word document into a memo field.

I am using the scalbium component, which works mostly, hence i am seeking an alternative method that works all the time.

Thanks in advance.

Scalabium have made available an update to their component that works on 854 of 855 tested documents.

I will still award points if I am provided with a working solution, not a link to a web page that talks in general about the topic and other MS products.

Although I do appreciate assistance through this forum, I can do google searches myself.

...
wd: TWordDocument;
wa: TWordApplication;
...

 Memo1.Clear;
  FileName := 'c:\temp.doc';
  wa.Connect;
  wa.Documents.Open(FileName, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam,
                    EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam
  );
  wa.Visible := True;
  wd.ConnectTo(wa.ActiveDocument);
  wd.Select;
  Memo1.Lines.Add(wd.Range.Text);
  wa.Visible := False;
  wa.Disconnect;

I assume uses word97 is required.

tried this but it crashes at:

wa.Documents.Open(MyFileName, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam);
 
I removed the EmptyParam code and left it blank.

Error - "types of actual and var parameters must be identical"

thanks for your help.

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls, Word97, OleServer, ComObj, Variants;

The sample was checked under Delphi7 with Word2002.

Just create an empty project and put 2 components (TWordApplication and TWordDocument) on the form.

I've checked. It works fine under Delphi6.
May be you've fogotten to create test file "c:\temp.doc"
Create the file with some text ("Test string" for example).
