  • See this article for how to use "Office interop" from .NET. Since you are working with a Windows Form, and not VSTO, the MSDN documentation for VSTO won't help you. Please also note that the VSTO forum doesn't support general "Office interop". You'll find links for alternate venues in the VSTO forum's Please Read First message.
