Hi,
I've pasted the code below (which I got from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb656295.aspx) into my application but the object WordprocessingDocument isn't recognised. This sounds like it should be straightforward but I haven't been able to find what imports reference I need to add in my page. Could anyone please let me know?
Thanks ...

Louise
Public Sub CreateNewWordDocument(ByVal document As String)
   Dim wordDoc As WordprocessingDocument = WordprocessingDocument.Create(document, WordprocessingDocumentType.Document)
   Using (wordDoc)
      ' Set the content of the document so that Word can open it.
      Dim mainPart As MainDocumentPart = wordDoc.AddMainDocumentPart
      SetMainDocumentContent(mainPart)
   End Using
End Sub

Public Sub SetMainDocumentContent(ByVal part As MainDocumentPart)
   Const docXml As String = "<?xml version=""1.0"" encoding=""UTF-8"" standalone=""yes""?>" & _
   "<w:document xmlns:w=""http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/wordprocessingml/2006/main"">" & _
   "<w:body><w:p><w:r><w:t>Hello world!</w:t></w:r></w:p></w:body></w:document>"
   Dim stream1 As Stream = part.GetStream
   Dim utf8encoder1 As UTF8Encoding = New UTF8Encoding()
   Dim buf() As Byte = utf8encoder1.GetBytes(docXml)
   stream1.Write(buf, 0, buf.Length)
End Sub

Reference Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word and Microsoft.Office.Core Then import:
Imports Microsoft.Office.Core
Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices
Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word

Hi,
I've done all that (I'm using Visual Studio 21010 and Microsoft.Office.Core isn't available to add as a reference, I selected Office 12 instead and .Office.Core is available to import in my code page), but the WordprocessingDocument type isn't recognised.

Do you know what the full path for WordprocessingDocument is (e.g. DataTable's full path is System.Data.DataTable)?

Thanks,

Louise

Actually, I've never used WordprocessingDocument. I've only used this to instantiate:

        Dim word As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application
        Dim WrdDoc As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document
        WrdDoc = word.Documents.Add()

That's not quite what I want to do. I need to create an Office Open XML package as described in the link in my question: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb656295.aspx as advised in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/257757
Thanks,

Actually, you want to download the latest 2.0 from here:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=c6e744e5-36e9-45f5-8d8c-331df206e0d0&displaylang=en

Then the reference is: DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Packaging
