Convert Word CAPI WLL to an "OLE AUTOMATION" program???

Post by Foo Ba » Tue, 18 May 1999 04:00:00

Hello Folks,

Anyone out there migrate a Word "WLL" program from a CAPI (C interface to
program to an OLE Automation program?

I understand that MS is not particularly interested in wordbasic's future
and therefore by
extension no longer interested in the C language interface to it.

Any tips, books, sites which might provide some insights for the OLE
(particularly as it
relates to writing Office programs (Word)) neophyte would be wonderful!

Note, this is a C++ project, not VB*.

Thanks much.



1. "ActiveX Automation" or "Ole Automation"


Microsoft have put a description of enhancements available with Office '97 on

In it they use the term "ActiveX Automation" and not "OLE Automation".

This is the first time I have seen this term used.

Does anyone know if it is now the official (Microsoft)
way of description Automation? (kinda makes sense, I think!).

JAVA, Visual J++, ActiveX, OCX'96, DCOM and MFC were all discussed. For
