How can I convert an existing Text document to an MS Word document?

Platform: WinForms |

We can convert a Text document to an MS word document, by reading the text document's contents as string, then the paragraph.AppendText(string) method is called, to insert the string into the document.

C#

//A new document is created.

WordDocument document = new WordDocument();

 //Adding a section to the document.

IWSection section = document.AddSection();

 //Adding a paragraph to the section.

IWParagraph paragraph = section.AddParagraph();

 //Insert Text into the word Document.

reader = new StreamReader(, "WinFAQ.txt", System.Text.Encoding.ASCII);

string text = reader.ReadToEnd();

 paragraph.AppendText(text);

 //Saving the document to disk.

document.Save("Sample.doc", FormatType.Doc);

VB

''A new document is created.

Dim document As WordDocument = New WordDocument()

 ''Adding a section to the document.

Dim section As IWSection = document.AddSection()

 ''Adding a paragraph to the section.

Dim paragraph As IWParagraph = section.AddParagraph()

 ''Insert Text into the word Document.

reader = New StreamReader("WinFAQ.txt", System.Text.Encoding.ASCII)

text = reader.ReadToEnd()

 paragraph.AppendText (text)

''Saving the document to disk.

document.Save("Sample.doc", FormatType.Doc)
