Hi
 I need to open a word document in C# . The word document has a password.
The code is :

object fileName = openFileDialog1.FileName;
object passwd = "BOSSPASS";
object readOnly = false;
object isVisible = true;
object missing = System.Reflection.Missing.Value;
string fname;
WordApp = new Word.ApplicationClass();
             
WordApp.Activate();
WordApp.Visible = true;
      
Word.Document aDoc = WordApp.Documents.Open(ref fileName, ref missing,ref readOnly,
ref missing, ref passwd, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref isVisible);

I am passing the passwd to the open statements. Still it opens the word document and prompts to enter the password.

Kindly help me to solve this problem.
Thanks in Advance,
sudha

You are missing some references....


<Your Code>
Word.Document aDoc = WordApp.Documents.Open(ref fileName, ref missing,ref readOnly,
ref missing, ref passwd, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref isVisible);

<My Code>
Word.Document aDoc = WordApp.Documents.Open(ref docPath, ref missing, ref readOnly,
ref missing, ref password, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref isVisible,
ref missing, ref missing, ref missing);

aDoc.Activate();
WordApp.Visible = true;
