Use the ComHelper class to load a document from a file or stream into a Document object in a COM application.

The Document class provides a default constructor to create a new document and also provides overloaded constructors to load a document from a file or stream. If you are using Aspose.Words from a .NET application, you can use all of the Document constructors directly, but if you are using Aspose.Words from a COM application, only the default Document constructor is available.


Dim helper
Set helper = CreateObject("Aspose.Words.ComHelper")

Dim doc
Set doc = helper.Open(fileName)
Shows how to open documents using the ComHelper class.
// If you need to open a document within a COM application,
// you will need to do so using the ComHelper class as instead of the Document constructor
ComHelper comHelper = new ComHelper();

// There are two ways of using a ComHelper to open a document
// 1: Using a filename
Document doc = comHelper.Open(MyDir + "Document.docx");
Assert.AreEqual("Hello World!\f", doc.GetText());

// 2: Using a Stream
using (FileStream stream = new FileStream(MyDir + "Document.docx", FileMode.Open))
    doc = comHelper.Open(stream);
    Assert.AreEqual("Hello World!\f", doc.GetText());
