Hello Experts,
I need to make a software that can quick modifications in a microsoft office 2007/2003 (doesn`t matter) or in any other document that supports tables. I want to add in the document at some coordinates or don`t know at the end of the line or what ever, mainly i need to know how to open a office document and edit it trough delphi code only, no manual edits needed. I need to add in the text some values from string variables.

Thank You,

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
