Interact with word files

Hello

I m working with Framework 1.1.
I d like to interact with word files (.doc or .dot) from the server. But
Neither office or word are installed on it.
There is a way for manipulating word file in a such configuration. Or do I
have to pass by a commercial component. That is to say for me, acquire a
library and put it in /bin directory and call the right Namespace. Someone
know a component wich allow to manipulate word file and realize different
merging with datasource ?
I have seen informations about the namespace Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.
But I don't understand all about it. If I can use it to do someting with
..doc file.

Thanks for all your help.
best regards

Hi fabrice,

I have used the interop dlls and yes they do allow you to work with doc
files. What I don't know is if you have to have office or word
installed on the server. I do faintly remember having to set security
permissions for the network service user to access the COM+ objects in
my server. I'm not at my server at the moment, but will have a look at
my config tonight an hopefully be able to give you a better insight in
the use of this.

Cheers

Nor should they be! Under no circumstances install Word or Office on your
web server.

This is pretty much the industry standard:

Hello,

Thanks for your help.
No, Word is not installed on the server.
And i wonder if i can manipulate doc files in that situation.
If yes by using interop dlls , do you know where i can get it ?
I m very interested by your configuration ;-)

Thanks in advance.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you try to incorporate Microsoft Office
interop into a web app - that is one of the worst things you can do in terms
of performance.

And if that's not good enough, see this from the manufacturers themselves:
