Automating Word - Charts & Graphs

Using VB.Net 2010 Professional
Running Word 2010, but developing for users who are running Word 2003

I'm looking for a good demo/tutorial to insert and format a line graph into a Word document from a VB.Net application.  (note the versions above)

The data points will be read from another document (as oppposed to a database or Excel file), effectively it will be an array in VB.

Once the document is created, the graph will be static.

To understand the properties / calls required to build your graph in Word, I recommend that you open Word and during a macro recording manually create your graph, once you're done look the VBA code generated for the macro.

I hope this helps.

It doesn't, but thanks anyway.
