Open MSWord .doc file

Recommended Posts

This should be simple, but I'm not figuring it out. How do I open an MSWord .doc file? Not just MSWord itself, but a specific .doc file. It appears the run command will only open an executable file and I can't seem to figure out any parameters to have it open a specific file.

Or via DllCall

$sCmd = 'c:\path\file.doc'
$sVerb = 'Open'
$sArg = '';Arguments
$sFolder = ''

$aRet = DllCall ("shell32.dll", "long", "ShellExecute", "hwnd", 0, "string", $sVerb, "string", $sCmd, "string", $sArg, "string", $sFolder, "long", @SW_SHOWNORMAL)
If $aRet[0] <= 32 Then
   MsgBox(16 + 4096,'Error','A problem occurred opening ' &  $sCmd)
EndIf

I like 'RunByAssoc' function, like an alternative to v3.0.102... :)

But, cool tip here with DLLCall. Thxs, ezze. :)

This works perfect when I tried to open a .htm file i have on my hard drive but when I try to open a .txt or a .doc file I get this error

Line 166 (file"C Myprogramdir~)

If Run($szRegValue & $szFile) Then Return 1

Error: Unable to execute the external program.

The system cannot find the file specified.
