a .doc file on presentation server and not a .docx -> Go for OLE.

@Raymond Giuseppi

any of those either .doc or .docx file.

As I tried it is not possible by OLE objects.


What object did you use, was it some ActiveDocument.Paragraphs, could you post your test code?


There is no issue reading a Word document using OLE. Your program had probably a bug, or you had authorization issues...
