C# tricks: Copy text from microsoft word in c#

U can’t access Microsoft doc file as u access a normal text file. For accessing a Microsoft doc file u have to add below dll as reference

u need to add reference from microsoft word object library 12.00 or 14.00
using Microsoft.Office.Core;
using Microsoft.Office.Interop;

now opening a doc file
//open msword in 2003
object fileName ="wordfile.doc";
object readOnly = false;
object isVisible = true;
object missing = System.Reflection.Missing.Value;
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass oWordApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass(); //create a object
//open the file
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document oWordDoc = oWordApp.Documents.Open2002(ref fileName,
ref missing, ref readOnly,
ref missing, ref missing, ref missing,
ref missing, ref missing, ref missing,
ref missing, ref missing, ref isVisible,
ref missing, ref missing, ref missing);
oWordApp.Visible = true;
TextBox1.Text = oWordDoc.Content.Text ; //show the text in textbox
oWordApp.Application.Quit(ref missing, ref missing, ref missing); //copy the text

hope this will help.
