Problems opening Microsoft Word documents in Sharepoint

  Asked By: Gopal    Date: Aug 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 8141

if anyone has any possibly suggestions.
I am having trouble programmatically opening Sharepoint documents
from Microsoft Word (VB6 add-in). Word freezes after opening and
bombs out completely, giving no errors or warnings.

The code I am using is simply to open the document from
the "Documents" collection of the application object, e.g. :-

objApp.Documents.Open "http://MyServer/MyWorkspace/Documents/Doc1.doc"

It opens the document but the egg timer stays in place, you can't
click on any menus etc, and after 6 or 7 seconds Microsoft Word

It works fine in my other add-ins with Excel and Powerpoint, which
use the same open method of the application object's "Wordbooks"
and "Presentations" collections respectively.
