Hi!

I am trying to open and save a document with Word 97.
I stripped the code down the the essential.

Everything goes well until the document should be saved.

<?
$word = new COM("word.application") or die("Unable to instanciate Word");
$word->Visible = 1;
$word->Documents->Open("d:\\docs\\tutorial.doc");
$word->ActiveDocument->SaveAs("test.doc");
$word->Quit();
?>

The saveas-Function produces the following error:

PHP Warning: Invoke() failed: Typ conflict. Argument: 2 in d:\php\wordsave.php on line 5

I tried also $word->Documents[1]->SaveAs("test.doc") with the same result.

Thanks

Harald

this is from words typelib, so it might be that you are missing one or two parameters :)

Hello!

No, the syntax is ok. There is much code in the net using just the same syntax. But I just discovered what is wrong: It?s a microsoft bug with Word97 with only few commands. Have a look at the knowledge base:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q169565

The solution is to use the older bordbasic syntax instead:
$word.WordBasic.FileSaveAs("test.doc");

This bug goes to Bill and PHP is just fine :->>

regards

Harald
