Hello. We need some help with DocIo and Word 2002.

We have a VS2008 .NET 3.5 C# web application which exports a mix of text, html, and image content into Word. We are using Syncfusion.DocIO.Base.dll File Version

There are two problems with Word 2002, both problems independently verified by three users.

#1, we are using the line of code:

document.Save(strFileName, Syncfusion.DocIO.FormatType.Doc, response, Syncfusion.DocIO.HttpContentDisposition.Attachment);

To send the generated document to the user, where "document" is of type IWordDocument and response is of type HttpResponse.

For users with Office 2007, they get a prompt to download or open the document (see attached DirectlyOpenDocIn2007.jpg).

For users with Office 2002, they get an error (see attached TryingToDirectlyOpenDocIn2002.jpg).

If a user with Office 2007 downloads the document and emails it to a user with 2002, the 2002 user is able to open it, but any content which was inserted as HTML appears as a black box (see DocViewedIn2002.PNG and DocViewedIn2007.jpg). As you see, tables and content inserted as text appears normally.

We are using the following line of code to insert the HTML blocks:

section.InsertHTML(strContent, section.Paragraphs.IndexOf(paragraph));

Where section is of type IWSection and paragraph is of type IWParagraph.

Thanks in advance.
