Open word Document based on template

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I tried several options and read a lot of forum posts. I want to open a new word document based on a template. Actually i want to open several worddocuments based on several word templates, but the problem is the same.

  • $oWordApp = _WordCreate("test.dot")

    • THis creates a Document1 based on the template
    • THis also opens the test.dot file (this is NOT what i want)
  • $oWordApp = ObjCreate("Word.Application")

    _WordDocAdd($oWordApp,0,"test.dot")

    • THis seems to do something, but there is no visual document created

Does anyone know the proper way tho achieve this,

thanks

Ton

Maybe:

$oWordApp = ObjCreate("Word.Application")
$oDoc = _WordDocAdd($oWordApp,0,"test.dot")
$oDoc.Visible = True

This works:

#include <word.au3>
$oWordApp = ObjCreate("Word.Application")
$oWordApp.Visible = true
$oDoc = _WordDocAdd($oWordApp, 0, "C:temptest.dot")
