How to identify the current document in an MSWord 2007 VB.net add-in

I am writing an add-in that saves the current document to a temp directory for additional processing. I placed a a button on a ribbon in my project and now I cannot figure out how to instanciate the current document to get its properties and save it to the temp directory. Can someone please help out with the VB.net code to identify the current document. Note that I am using Word2007 and Visual Studio 2008 SP1. Thanks

You could try using Application.ActiveDocument
So, for example, if your addin is named ThisAddIn, you could get the attributes of the active document by using
Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveDocument
For example
Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveDocument.Path
would return the path of the current document
Is that what you are looking for?
