I need to write some code that edits a Word document. However, I don't want to use the Word automation system in VB as that involves running Word in the background. It's a system I've used for a while and have found it to work most of the time, but it has its quirks.
Anyway. I was wondering if anybody knew of a way to edit a Word document easily but without using automation? Are there any resources that you know of that allow easy direct editing of the file itself?
