Is it a Windows Forms applicaiton, console app, asp.net app, etc? I have a windows forms app that uses an Access database (not my choice....) on a 64 bit system. Needless to say it no workey. I had to tell visual studio 2008 to build the assembly in 32 bit mode, delete the debug/release folders under the bin folder, and rebuild it. After that i had a 32 bit assembly that runs just fine.

using a 3rd party product like http://www.aspose.com/categories/.net-components/aspose.words-for-.net/default.aspx solves a lot of problems when you need to interop Office.
