I have a MS Word plugin using MFC and ATL.  I know how to get a pointer to the Word active document.  I can save the document, etc., but how can I get access to the text contents of that document to modify it then save it.

Thanks!!

You need to search class Selection or Range
...
"Use the InsertAfter or InsertBefore method to insert text before or after a Selection or Range object. The following example inserts text at the end of the active document."
...

It can be /VBA code/
Set doc = ActiveDocument
Set rngRange = _
    doc.Range(doc.Paragraphs(1).Start,  doc.Paragraphs(1).End - 1)
rngRange.InsertAfter _
    " This is now the last sentence in paragraph one."

Question...  "It can be VBA code".  Is that a question or a statement??  I don't know how to call VBA code from C++.  

Thanks!

It is a statement with notice.
"It can be:"
Text
You don't need to use VBA code in C++. Try only to look into.
Can you see using of ActiveDocument.Range, ActiveDocument.Paragraph(), Range.InsertAfter()?

Yes, I can use those functions.  Not sure of the syntax though.  Do you have the C++ code.

No, I haven't C++ cod.e It can be something like that:

CRange* rngRange = pDocumentt->Range(pDocumentt->Paragraphs(1)->Start(),  pDocumentt->Paragraphs(1)->End() - 1);

rngRange->InsertAfter(" This is now the last sentence in paragraph one.");

Does rngRange represent the actual word document itself?   In other words, if I save it to a database, I can read it back out again??  

Thanks!!
