Do you have the appropriate version of Office installed on the system? It needs to be installed for Interop to work.

Yes I have Office 2007 Enterprise installed on the machine.  I have now found I can add the reference to a Console or Form vb application but not a Website.  I think its some kind of rights issue when doing a website application.

Okay. Web site. Note that a web site works under an application pool. The application pool runs under a user context. Usually it's Network Service.

What happens if you make the Network Service local admin on the server (just for testing purposes -- don't leave it at that high level of access)?

Problem fixed!  I re-installed office and it fixed the issues with adding the reference.
