Interop with Office, compatibility?
I want to do some Office automation (unicode search/replace in Word, Excel and PowerPoint). I still don't know whether that'd be a winform or asp.net app, but in both case the following items are important to me.. Could you please confirm/correct/comment:
The point being, of course, that I don't know which Office version will the user be running (if winform), and that I don't know yet which server I'll be using (if asp.net).
This article should answer most of your questions:
I looked into this. Eventually I took the Word 97 com object and got .NET to put a COM wrapper round it for me. Now I can work with 97+ (as long as I'm happy with 97 facilities)
