OLE Automation of Word

Question:
How do you open a specific Word document through a Visual FoxPro program?

Answer:
You simply add the document to the Word.Application’s Documents collection. Here is a code sample that opens a document called mydoc.doc in the root directory of the C drive:

goWord = CREATEOBJECT("Word.Application")goWord.Visible = .t.goWord.Documents.Add("c:mydoc.doc")

Be sure to use a full path when passing the document name.
