Word Automation

P: n/a
Hope someone can help.

I have an application that interacts with Word.however I have two
versions of word installed on some of the machines. and need to be
able to select which version gets called.
I have tried the following code to specify which version
Set WordApp = CreateObject("word.application.8") ' Word 97
Set WordApp = CreateObject("word.application.9") ' Word 2000

this only opens word at the current version(2000)
This is driving me mad. Anyone know why this does not work?

Thanks and regards,
Richpu

If you convert from early binding to late binding, the version issues
disappear... and you won't need to figure out which version of Word is
installed.
