OLE Automation Word 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have implemented an Office solution for a large industrial customer in German engineering.<o:p></o:p>

    In this solution oleAutomation is used to generate Word documents.<o:p></o:p>


    With Word of Office 2010 this works fine.<o:p></o:p>

    Unfortunately, after an update with Office 2013 we have big problems with the generation by Word oleAutomation. After our first tests, it seems that Word 2013 works much more asynchronously as older versions of Word. This causes that the documents are no longer correctly generated. Text blocks at the end come suddenly at the beginning, tables are corrupted etc.

    Our question: is there a synchronization method or setting for Word OLE Automation, with which we can make sure that the OLE-macro statements run synchronously, i.e. carried out one after the other.<o:p></o:p>

    Or is there here eventually another workaround.

    We are migration the document generation completely with .net technology, but this needs a major redesign and the document generation must work correctly before this is done.

    Thanks for any tip
