Hi,
 
I am working on a project where I need to automate MS Word and create some Documents.

I have no problems creating a word application or document object, but I do have a problem wtih the Bookmarks.

I have the following code:

                  object oMissing = System.Reflection.Missing.Value;
                  object oEndOfDoc = "\\endofdoc";
                  object oTemplate = "C:\\temp\\Invoice.dot";
                  object oBookMark = "Name";
                  
                  Word._Application oWord;
                  Word._Document oDoc;

                  oWord = new Word.Application();
                  
                  oWord.Visible = true;

                  oDoc = oWord.Documents.Add(ref oTemplate, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing);

                  oDoc.Bookmarks.Item(ref oBookMark).Range.Text = "TEXT GOES HERE";

However when I build my project, I get the following error:

'Word.Bookmarks' does not contain a definition for 'Item'

Now on all the examples I have seen the above Bookmark code is used, but why do I get that error ? The Intellisense menu VS.Net pops up does not include an Item definition.

Am I not referencing something correctly ?

Thanks

Andrew

I got a piece of code from MSDN for updating a BookMark text. The code is

internal void BookMarkReplaceRange(string bookmarkName, string newText)
{
    object missingValue = Type.Missing;
    object oBookmarkName = bookmarkName;
    Word.Range rng = ThisDocument.Bookmarks.get_Item(    //Here we are getting the range from an existing Bookmark.
        ref oBookmarkName).Range;                                        // Then we are reseting the text.
    rng.Text = newText;
    object oRng = rng;
    ThisDocument.Bookmarks.Add(bookmarkName, ref oRng);
}

You can refer the following article for more details

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;316384

Here they have asked u to add the following on top of the page

using Word = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word;
using System.Reflection;

Hi,

Yes I have read that article already, though it doesnt help much because when I compile the program I am told that Bookmarks does not contain a definition for get_Item. Which is the same error I get when using Bookmark.Item.

The using statments are already added to the class.

Try this:

...
oDoc = oWord.Documents.Add(ref oTemplate, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing);
oDoc.Activate();
...
