Using VB .NET to iterate through a Fields Collection within a Microsoft Word Document ?

Hi Guys,

Am wanting to iterate through a set of Mailmerge Fields within a MS-Word
document using VB .NET. Here's a fragment of code that (should) do this!

Dim WordDoc As Word.Document =
WordApp.Documen ts.Add("Test.do c")
WordDoc.Activat e()
Dim Field As Word.Field
Dim C As Integer = 1
While C <= WordDoc.Fields. Count
Field = WordDoc.Fields. Item(C)
C = C + 1
End While

However, I've noticed that not all the fields are picked up, suspect it's
this line that's the problem...

Field = WordDoc.Fields. Item(C)

Although I don't understand why. In the debugger, C runs through as a
sequence, i.e. 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc

'For Each Field In Word.Fields' doesn't seem to work.

Any help appreciated.

I'm trying to write a utility that will use Reflection to examine any data model I pass it and correctly map out this model into a tree structure.
