Hi,

You can use this code which will open Word, create a new doc, insert lines and tabs and finally show word with a new document containing this result:


Line 1
      Line 2
            Line 3
Line 4
Line 5



unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs, ComObj, StdCtrls, ExtCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
   
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Déclarations privées }
  public
    { Déclarations publiques }
  end;

var
  Form1            : TForm1;
  Word             : OLEVariant;
  Sel, Doc         : Variant;

const
vbTab = Chr(9);

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure Return;
begin
Sel.TypeParagraph;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  try
  Word := CreateOleObject('Word.Application');
  except
  ShowMessage('Cannot start Word !');
  Exit;
  end;

// Word will only be visible when the text is inserted
Doc:=Word.Documents.Add;
Sel:=Word.Selection;

Sel.Font.Name     := 'Times New Roman';
Sel.Font.Size     := 12;
Sel.ParagraphFormat.Alignment := 0; //left aligned

Sel.TypeText('Line 1');
Return;
Sel.TypeText(Text := vbtab + 'Line 2');
Return;
Sel.TypeText(Text := vbtab + vbtab + 'Line 3');
Return;
Sel.TypeText(Text := 'Line 4');
Return;
Sel.TypeText(Text := 'Line 5');
Return;

Word.Visible := True;

end;

end.
