PasteSpecial:- Command failed in VSTO word 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    This is one serious problem I facing for last few days.

    When I am trying to pasteSpecial in content control, sometimes I receive this error:-Command failed.

    Again if I close and reopen the word and try it, it works fine.

    Is there any solution for the same. Client is very upset with this.

    Any help is appreciated.

  • Here is the code sample:-

      object typeHtml = (object)Word.WdPasteDataType.wdPasteHTML;
                                contentControls.get_Item(ref i).Type = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdContentControlType.wdContentControlRichText;
    contentControls.get_Item(ref i).Range.Text = "";
                                contentControls.get_Item(ref i).Range.Select();
                                Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveDocument.Application.Selection.PasteSpecial(ref missingVal, ref missingVal,ref missingVal, ref missingVal, ref typeHtml, ref missingVal, ref missingVal);

    This line is giving error...
