Hi !

How do i open a Word document ?
I use this :
===============================
Dim MyDoc As Word.Application

Set MyDoc = New Word.Application
MyDoc.Documents.Open ("c:\TP2\facture.doc")
===============================
It works great but i never actually see the Word document.
I'm adding data in it but it seems as if the transfer was done
in the background....
Is there any way that i could open the Word document once
the transfer is done ???

Also, when the file is already opened i have that read-only
warning message. How can i get rid of it ???

Thanks !

if u want to open the word file stored as a variable by clicking a button on the form.

set a reference to MS word object lib in your project and add this code :

Private Sub Command1_Click()

Dim MyApp As Object
Dim MyDoc As Object
Set MyApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
Set myDoc = MyApp.Documents.Open("C:\TP2\facture.doc")
MyApp.Visible = True

End Sub

u have to write code to handle the error.
check for its attributes wheteher it is a read only or anything.. then you can handle the error.
you can use the filesystemobject implementing this.

whenever u open a word doc, and some other opens it  lock the file and second application get it as a read only warning.
