Retrieve Page Count for Office Documents RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using dsofile.dll in my Application to retrieve page count property for Office documents like doc, xls and ppt.

    It provides default page count as 1 for all Word documents and 0 for all excel documents

    I need page count for Word document and excel sheet count for excel documents.


    //The following Sample Code, am using in that application

    int noofPages;

    DSOFile.OleDocumentPropertiesClass objDocument = null;


    (uploadedFile, true, dsoFileOpenOptions.dsoOptionOpenReadOnlyIfNoWriteAccess);

    noofPages = objDocument.SummaryProperties.PageCount


    Pls let me know, How Can I get the exact page count for the above documents


    Thanks and Regards,
