word and excel

Sam
I want php to start MS Word. I tried this but I receive an error:

1 <?php
2 $word = new COM("Word.Application") or die("Unable to instanciate Word");
3 $word->Visible=1
4 $word->Documents->Add("c:/test.doc");
5 $word->Quit();
6 $word->Release();
7 $word = null;
8 ?>

Error:
Warning: (null)(): Invoke() failed: Er is een uitzondering opgetreden. Source: Microsoft Word Description: De opslagruimte voor macro's kan niet worden geopend. in C:\Documents and Settings\sam\Mijn documenten\Werkmap\Sam\html\TMP1brqelb8k6.php on line 4

I tried the same with the Excel-Object:
In that case I don't receive an error but I cannot see the excel-workbook.

What am I doing wrong?

There's nothing you can do if a client's MIME types are not successfully
set up in their browser to point application/msword to MS Word. But
since most Windows machines (and most Linux machines running OpenOffice)
do, you can use the following:

<?php
// We'll be outputting a Word Document
header("Content-type: application/msword");

// It will be called worddoc.doc
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=worddoc.doc");

// The file source is in test.doc
readfile('test.doc');
?>

Actually, I want to do more than just open a Word-document.
I also want to write data to the bookmarks in my Word-document, etc.
It should be possible to do so with the Com-object
(If you go to the www.php.net site and search for 'com' in the function
list, you can see some examples).
One should be able to access the Word-document as from a VB-environment.
It just doesn't seem to work on my machine.

Please do not top post.

You could try to save Word files in HTML(XML)
format, then manipulating them will be easier. And
faster, too...Then, after changing, call the COM
object to turn it back into Word document.
