Word API Documents collection documentation: moved and changes with the introduction of Word 2013

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/08/05

I’ve done a bit of WinWord automation and came across different locations for the API:

New Style:

Old Style:

Fun fact: there is no Old Style Word 2007 documentation any more. You might expect it at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms263641(v=office.12) but it is not there.

Not so fun fact (and the reason I was looking for the Documents documentation), is because of this big bug ONLY in Office 2010 (it does not occur in Office 2000 .. 2007, and is fixed in 2013): The WordMeister » Bug Word 2010: Documents collection is not correctly maintained.

The only workaround is to run an Office Add-in, or VBA Macro. Both not feasible for external clients.
