I am translating the code to get the information of Word Document in vb.net. The starting steps are same for both C# and vb.net

Dim dso As New DSOleFile.PropertyReaderClass()
Dim dp As DSOleFile.DocumentProperties = dso.GetDocumentProperties("abc.doc")
TextBox1.Text = dp.Author
TextBox2.Text = dp.Comments
TextBox3.Text = dp.Keywords
TextBox4.Text = dp.WordCount
TextBox5.Text = dp.Subject
