Word 365 / Microsoft 365 / Office 365

Recommended Posts

I have been using Water's excellent Word UDF for years with a local copy of Microsoft Word on the local machine.

My question is regarding Word in Word 365, or Microsoft 365, or Office 365, or whatever Microsoft calls the cloud version now.

Can I use the existing UDF with some modification, or is there a UDF for the cloud, or am I completely misunderstanding how the cloud version works?

I have not yet purchased the cloud version of Word (or MIcrosoft/Office 365) and so have not yet tried coding for it.

Thanks for any assistance.

ahha

"Microsoft 365" (that's the current name as of 2022-12-04, may change ^^) still offers a standard installation of the software on your PC. Seems to work fine :)

 

Any of my own codes posted on the forum are free for use by others without any restriction of any kind. (WTFPL)

All of my UDFs use COM to interact with MS programs. So they only work with local installations.

Marc - thanks.  I think that's the version that does not connect to the cloud. 

Water - thanks.  I was afraid that was the case.  Looks like we're going back to the mainframe - terminal model (again :(

Both - Which brings up the question of how one tells if it's the cloud version versus local installation?

You could try to start the local version of MS Word using function _Word_Create.
If you get @error=1 one of the reasons could be that there is no local installation of MS Word.
Check @extended for the COM error code.

It's based on subscription.

If you have a MS365 Basic it comes with browser only applications for word/excel etc, If you have MS365 Standard it comes with the option to install the classic non-cloud desktop "called premium" applications and they work just like the regular applications.

The premium applications are also connected to the cloud for activation and integration with onedrive / sharepoint so it's easy to work with documents in the cloud.

So basically you have to determine using the control panel  to see if the premium apps are installed search for "Microsoft 365 Apps for business" of whatever it's called in your local language.
