Word Automation through Win32::OLE #2
Long time lurker, first time poster...please be gentle.
I am attempting to move through a directory, pull out only files of a
..fin extension (which is Word document format), save each one as .rtf
(Rich Text Format). I'd also like to be able to run some predefined
macros on the files, but I thought just being able to save was a good
place to start.
Currently I get an error stating 'Can't call method "SaveAs" on an

The following code works perfectly with WORD6/Windows95/PB6, but does
not work for WORD 97/NT.

...MS-Word & Powerpoint automation, using OLE automation [Edit]
Here is what I need to do, from my Delphi application : starting from a MS-Word document, create a PPT presentation simply made of a series of embedded MS-Word objects. There would be 1 slide for each page of the source document (assuming same page size & orientation on both sides).
This requires to control both a WordApplication and a PowerpointApplication in parallel, and proceed basically as follows :
- in Word, open the source file
- In Powerpoint, create a new presentation
- For each page of the Word doc,

Would like to open word document using OLE after populating word using OLE
Automation. The document should open up in print preview mode,and then using
either VBA, or other code print or close from print preview. I want to
supress all menus and commandbars from the word document.
What code can i run from PB script to open in print preview and turn off
menus and command bars, and put in two of my own command buttons.
...Word OLE automation
I am about to embark on a PB 5.0 project that will require dynamic creation
of documents for use with Word 97's mail merge capability.
Being that this is my first time using OLE, as well as my first time
programming Word, could anybody point me in the right direction (books,
articles, web sites, etc.) to get me started? I've experimented a little
with what I could find on Microsoft's and Sybase's sites, but I am looking
for something more comprehensive.

I found out that the client machines that will be running my app will
have office 95 on them. So I decided to use the spell checking example
that Powersoft provied to work with Excel, instead of using the VS ocx.

I'm using OLE automation with Word 6 to perform a mail merge. Most of the
methods work OK (FileOpen, FilePrint etc.) but some of them don't
PB says : Error calling external object function blablabla ...
The function's name is OK, and the parameters also.
I've debugged the externalexception event, and the OLE server tells me that
I've tried to handle an element like a function when it isn't.
The bizarre thing is that, calling a macro with that instruction (FileClose)
Perhaps the solution is putting all the code in the macro ?
...OLE automation with word 97
Dear Sir /Madam
I like to ask about how to use the oleobject with Word 97, On word 95 and
its predecessor, its clear to use "word.basic" but the speed is very slow
compare with other OLE connectivity, So I try with word 97, but the format
and function of word 97 is very different from the previous ones, they use
VBA (for visual Basic Command), So I like to ask if to use OLE with word97
to connect and merge letter with data supplied by PowerBuilder, like code
below, what is the corresponding code in word 97?, or Does PowerBuilder
5.0 does not support Word 97 or vice-versa. ...Win32::OLE Word Macro Conversion
Hi there all,
I'm writing a simple script to batch convert word documents into HTML.
However, I need also to disable the impossibly stupid "Smart Tags" that get
embedded. The VBA macro below contains the important lines ( .EmbedSmartTags
= False, .LabelSmartTags = False). Could anyone give me a clue to getting
that functionality into the script at the bottom?
Very many thanks!

...OLE Automation with Delphi and MS Word
I'm working with Delphi for a while now, but it's the first time that I need to export in Word some data taken from a sqlite database.
With SQLite there are no problems, everything works as it should. With Word, also because of the lack of good part of documentation, I'm currently having troubles, in particular, in the moment when i go to split a cell of a table, depending on the number of occurrences found with a SQLite query (1 occurrence = do nothing, 2 occurrences = split the cell into two rows, 15 occurrences = split the cell into 15 rows and so on).

I am trying to bring up a window that lets the user view a Microsoft Word
that window, the user can click a button called "OK TO PRINT" and from
there, the word
document is printed. Some users do not have Word on their machines so using
OLE object is the way to go.
In my window, I placed an ole control of type "Microsoft Word Document".
The display type is "Displayasactivexobject!"
Then I went to the open event for the window and put in the following code:
