Com Object Issue Re: Certain Methods

2 posts in this topic

Can someone please tell me if using the following MS Word COM method is possible, and if so, how one would go about using it?

I'm trying to create and fill in a Word document without having to use the "Send" command. It would be much cleaner to use this method:

.Activedocument.Content.InsertAfter Text:="The end."

...but unfortunately AutoIt doesn't like the space between "InsertAfter" and "Text," which causes it to assume the text after the space is a parameter.

Is it possible, using AutoIt, to use COM methods like this in a script? How would I code it?

Thanks in advance.

Never mind! I answered my own question. Here's the solution:

.Activedocument.Content.InsertAfter("The End")
