I have an .NET 2.0 aspx web page that contains a combination of HTML Table with Lables and Literals embedded throughout the tables and I also have one GridView object on the page.   I want to know how to export that entire page to an MS-WORD document.

I have the page display in the Web form with a link button that says "Export to Word",  when they click on that link they are redirected to Web page formatted for the print output, which is basically the same page without the banners, menus, etc.

On the page I have the following fuction to export to Word.  I was try to use the same method I did for export a GridView object on a page to excel, which is a slightly different need that i have here.  Instead if rendering out just one control, I want to render the entire page.

Here is a snippit of code I am try to work with..which doesn't work....

-------------- Start Code Sample ---------------------------------------
        protected void ExportReport()
        {
            Response.Clear();

            Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=FastAirReport.doc");

            this.EnableViewState = false;
            Response.Charset = String.Empty;

            Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-word";
            //Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.xls";

            System.IO.StringWriter stringWrite = new System.IO.StringWriter();

            System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter htmlWrite = new HtmlTextWriter(stringWrite);

            //GridView1.RenderControl(htmlWrite);
            form1.RenderControl(htmlWrite);
         
           
           

            Response.Write(stringWrite.ToString());

            Response.End();


        }
        public override void VerifyRenderingInServerForm(Control form1)
        {

            // Confirms that an HtmlForm control is rendered for the
            //specified ASP.NET server control at run time.

        }

---------------------- End Code Sample ---------------------------------------------

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
