This is the COM function being called from PHP.


Public Function setFile(filename as String)
    Set wproc = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    wproc.Visible = False
    wproc.Documents.Open (filename)
    str1 = Mid(filename, 1, Len(filename) - 3) & "txt"
    wproc.ActiveDocument.SaveAs str1, wdFormatText
    wproc.Quit
End Function

The error message popped is Invoke failed exception in the line where function is called.

<?php

// get a web page into an array .

$Obj = new com('prjWord.clsWord'); 
echo "Loaded {$Obj}";
echo "<br>";
$Obj->filename1 = 'C:\shanky2.doc';
$Obj->setFile();

?>

shanky2.doc is the file to be read.

And this is the function in the Com component which gives error, otherwise other normal fuctions work properly. 


Public Function setFile(filename as String)
    Set wproc = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    wproc.Visible = False
    wproc.Documents.Open (filename)
    str1 = Mid(filename, 1, Len(filename) - 3) & "txt"
    wproc.ActiveDocument.SaveAs str1, wdFormatText
    wproc.Quit
End Function

i can't follow you, you're calling a function that requires a parameter without it, how should this work ?

try $Obj->setFile("whatever.doc");
