  • Could you please be more specific about what you mean by ""? A Windows form? A Console app? Something else?

    What kind of Word document (created in which version of Word)?

    What else does your project need to do with Word and/or this document?

  • Hi Cindy, thanks for your reply. actually, i'm using vb express 2010 and office 2007.

    i just want to get  the number of pages from a word document using code.

    i found this snippet from the internet but it just doesn't work:


    word_server = New Word.Application

    Dim Doc As Word.Document

    Doc = word_server.Documents.Open(FilePath)

    numpages = Doc.ComputeStatistics(wdStatisticPages)

    msgbox numpages

    can help to do this in vs 2010 express ed., thanks

  • Hi cguan

    The code should work, in principle. Please tell us exactly HOW it doesn't work for you.
