    How to open word.doc from VB5


    What is the syntax to open a word document in word97, calling it from VB5?
    I can open a txt file by "open file.txt for input as #1" But I want to open
    word then the entire document to be displayed, with user being able to make
    changes, save and print.

    Will,

    The vb.vba group is somewhat more reliable for VBA questions.

    The basic answer is to dim a variable as word application, set the variable
    to a word application using CreateObject, manipulate Word as desired (such
    as objApp.Documents.Open("filename") and close word. If word is already
    open, you will want to use GetObject. Why don't you give it a shot with that
    information, or search the vb.vba group where I know this question has been
    answered with tested code.
