The old _WordAttach (Autoit 3.3.8.1) function might give you an idea:

Yes, but the window title is a bit different. It is

$WordObject.ActiveDocument.Name & " - Microsoft Word"

I know what do you mean by the "I know". You did the re-writing of the Word.au3 :) Thanks for such a nice UDF

When getting your feet wet with the Word Developer Reference you find a lot of useful information. Sometimes it gets too much so you do not know where to start and where to end.
Happy reading :)

      I've failed to find an example of _Word_DocFindReplace which searches for formatted text (I'm looking for stand alone paragraph marks that are formatted other than normal i.e. Bold Italic, Underlined). 
      The reason being that when converting a Word document to html one of the main problems in the results is that a stand alone paragraph mark is converted to an html space that retains the formatting ...>&nbsp;<... thus showing up as a underline _  in a browser when it should be blank.  I've played around with the script and got it to at least un-bold  the first paragraph mark regardless if it was bold or not but I'd like to clear all formatting from any stand alone paragraph marks in the whole document.  Below is what I've done so far (not much more than in the help file I'm afraid) .  Way down at the bottom of the _Word_DocFindReplace  help  text is this parameter but without any examples to be found :
      $bFormat   [optional] True to have the find operation locate formatting in addition to or instead of the find text (default = False) #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Word.au3> $processing = @MyDocumentsDir & '\AutoIt_code\getter\processing\' Global $oWord = _Word_Create() Global $sTestfile = $processing & "Testing.docx" ConsoleWrite($sTestfile & @CRLF) Global $oDoc = _Word_DocOpen($oWord, $sTestfile) If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "ERROR", "Error opening file = '" & $sTestfile & "'" & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) $oRangeFound = _Word_DocFind($oDoc, "^p", Default, Default) If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Word UDF: _Word_DocFind Example", _ "Error locating paragraph control character in the document." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) $oRangeFound.Bold = False If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Word UDF: _Word_DocFind Example", _ "Error inserting text after the paragraph control character in the document." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & _ ", @extended = " & @extended) MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Word UDF: _Word_DocFind Example", "Paragraph control character successfully replaced." & @CRLF & _ "Text inserted in paragraph 2.")

      Good morning everyone
      I am working on a little script, which takes some data from a SQLite DB and should create a sort of report, inserting rows in a Word Document... I arrived at the point of:
      _Word_DocTableWrite() and, I don't know how to set the range parameter? What does that specify? 
      Thanks a lot for the help
      EDIT:
      Managed to write a table in the Word document, but now I get an error when I save the document with _Word_DocSaveAs(), with error 2.
      Which are possible causes? Thanks a lot, again
      EDIT 2:
      ... And, how can I set a border to the table? Maybe, with a sort of auto-formatting for text ( larger is the text, larger is the height/width of the table's cell ).
      Thanks  
      EDIT 3 ( bug ):
      Including the parameter $WdSaveChanges in the function _Word_DocSaveAs(), a save dialog box appears, and it should not do it, as it's written in the MSDN documentation:
      wdSaveChanges -1 Save pending changes automatically without prompting the user. Thanks again for everyone will answer to me

      I'm using the Word UDF for the first time, and I'm having some trouble with _Word_DocFind(). There isn't really much talk around the forums about this so it's hard to find any support on the issue I'm having. Here's my code:
      #include <Word.au3> $listPath = @ScriptDir & "\AMCH OFFSET 042617.docx" $pWord = _Word_Create() $oWord = _Word_DocOpen($pWord, $listPath) Local $ctr = 0 Local $searchRange = _Word_DocFind($oWord, "Claim Number") If Not @error Then $ctr += 1 EndIf While ($searchRange <> 0) $searchRange = _Word_DocFind($oWord, "Claim Number", 0, $searchRange) If Not @error Then $ctr += 1 EndIf $searchRange.Select WEnd My problem is that it doesn't seem to find a match of the string on any page after the second. When I run the script, it just loops indefinitely on the second page. I can't post an example of the word document because it is medical data, but every page is basically the same and every page has the string I am looking for on it. Also I tried checking @error after doing a find and it is never set, so I don't think that's the problem.

      Hi all. 
      I am trying to do 2 things but i cannot seem to get any traction on how to read/implement this idea.
      Premise: PowerPoint file in C\temp\presentation.pptx that contains on the first slide 2 entries as "<one>" and "<two>" which need to be replaced with "user1" and "user2", then a silent Outlook send mail containing the file with a predefined body and subject.
      I narrowed it down to COM objects as the Office does not like intrusive open AutoIt functions. I installed OLE/COM Object Viewer to understand how to create the commands but i am still stuck. So far i am trying to user water's code but i suck
      COM object i was originally trying to modify
      Dim $oPPT, $oPres $oPPT = ObjCreate("PowerPoint.Application") $oPPT.Visible = True $oPres = $oPPT.Presentations.Read Water's code below (0.1% modified)
      #include <File.au3> #include "PowerPoint.au3" #include <misc.au3> Global $sFile = "C:\temp\presentation.pptx" Global $sString2Search = "<username>", $sString2Replace = "Password", $iReplaceOnce = 1, $sFullLogFile = "C:\temp\pptxlog.txt" _ProcessPpt($sFile) Func _ProcessPpt($sFile) $oApp = _PPT_PowerPointApp() Local $bChange = False Local $oInterface = $oApp.Presentations Local $oPresentation = $oInterface.Open($sFile, False, False, False) If @error Then _FileWriteLog($sFullLogFile, "E Error " & @error & " opening File " & $sFile) Return SetError(1, 0, 0) EndIf ;it does not even open my file and from here not sure how to read the text and replace it EndFunc ;==>_ProcessPpt

      Hello, in my own design of small procedures, used to insert the ellipse notation in the GUI graphics, and let the arrow pointing to the little girl mouth position.
