Here is the code that helps to read any document (like .doc, .rtf , txt )
from specified location. This is a web based application and this code is
written in C# as code behind in ASP.Net 2.0, where the word document
is hard to upload from client side. Here is the code that uploads the
document file and stores it into a string and from that I have placed
that string into a textbox.
The First Step is that, we need to add a COM reference (that’s how we
need to define the word application) to the project by right clicking in
the solution explorer on References->Add Reference. Click on the COM
tab and look for the Microsoft Word 9.0 Object Library. Click Select
Now u need to add the line <identity impersonate="true"/>
in your web.config .
Then here is the code u need to add in your summit button: :
protected void Submit1_ServerClick(object sender, EventArgs e)
Word.ApplicationClass wordApp = new Word.ApplicationClass();
// Input box is used to get the path of the file which has to be
uploaded into textbox.
string filePath = inputbox.Value;
object file = filePath;
object nullobj = System.Reflection.Missing.Value;
// here on Document.Open there should be 9 arg.
Word.Document doc = wordApp.Documents.Open(ref file,
ref nullobj, ref nullobj,ref nullobj, ref nullobj, ref nullobj,
ref nullobj, ref nullobj, ref nullobj,ref nullobj, ref nullobj,
// Here the word content is copeied into a string which helps to
store it into textbox.
Word.Document doc1 = wordApp.ActiveDocument;
string m_Content = doc1.Content.Text;
// the content is stored into the textbox.
m_Textbox.Text = m_Content;
doc.Close(ref nullobj, ref nullobj, ref nullobj);
Hope this helps,
