MS word error message while trying to open using Ms visual Studio

I am a simple end user of visual studio who is trying to open a word document. When I am trying to open a document created in Microsoft word 2003 using MS Visual Studio 2008 I get this error message

 “Document Does Not Exist in the Specified Location”

I was not sure if I have to install a plug-in or use an existing service?

 

I haven't been able to find anything on internet. I was not sure is there were any compatibility issues .

Any suggestions ?

Hello Daniel Martin,

You need to know that there is a difference between the file extensions of MS Office 2003 and 2008 (i.e .doc and .docx).

So in case when you save your file in 2008 version then you should select 97-2003 option in the "SAVE AS" tag in the File Menu.

This way you will be able to check your work on any version easily. Regards Maddie.

Hello Daniel Martin,
I think you have missed some first basic steps for opening word 2003 files with visual studio 2008.
You need visual studio tools for office (It is an optional component of VB studio 2008).
To get step by step instruction please visit here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc442946%28v=vs.90%29.aspx

If it helps you then please rate this comment or Mark this as solved. Hope now you're able to step further with VB Studio 2008.
