MS Word automation in C#

I have Visual Studio 2005 running on Windows Vista

I want to automate MS Word 2007 documents in my C# code.

Where do I begin?  The sample code I have found so far does not seem to work.  I have added the Word Object LIbrary to my Windows App References.

in my code.  I would have thought that I wouldn't have to type all of that each time.

But, it works....thanks!
