Edit Ms Word documents with C#, without using Microsoft.Office.Interop.

Posted on 2010-09-13
Last Modified: 2012-05-10

I want to create a document word from another one (copying a document) with replacing some strings in the old one with another strings. So, I get, in the end, a new document that has the same content as the first one except the replaced strings.
I have to do this without using Microsoft.Office.Interop;
Thank you.

You could do this with the Open XML SDK 2.0 for Microsoft Office http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/bb448854(office.14).aspx

Only 2007 documents will work with the SDK.

Unfortunately, no.  Word 2003 is a proprietary format that requires licensing.
