  • There are no native controls for working with docx files in Windows Store APIs. You may be able to find a third-party control that does this.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
