The issue is not with the code you posted but the code that opens the file selection dialog box. The  File Type filter needs updated to included the new document types.


openFileDialog.InitialDirectory = @"c:\"; openFileDialog.Filter = "Word 2000-2003|*.doc|Word 2007/2010|*.docx|All|*.*"; openFileDialog.ShowDialog();

Open in new window
