Using MS-Word Spell check API's in VB

Posted on 2004-03-25

I have an array of 6 English words. Out of these words some are not spelt properly. While going through this array in a "for loop", I need to write each correctly spelt word into a file (.txt or .doc). If a word is incorrectly spelt then I should not write it in the file.
Should I be using some Word-API to achieve the task? If yes, can you please let me know how to do this? (I have MS Word-2002 installed in my system.)


Now while reading this array only Dollar and Pound should be written out in the file (.txt or .doc).

Some pseudo code (from my memory) which can help :

' Launch word
Set WordApplication = CreateObject("Word.Application")

' for debugging : let the word window be visible

' Create a new blank document
Set WordDocument = WordApplication.Documents.Add()

' check a word (repeat for each word)
for ...
   WordDocument.Content.Text = h
   if    WordDocument.SpellingErrors.count=0 then
      ' the word is OK
      ' the word is misspelled
   end if

' when all the word are checked, close word
   WordDocument.Close false
   Set WordDocument=nothing
