I use a vb component that pulls a MS Word doc and fills in the bookmarks, with what the user has filled in on the form.<BR> My problem is this. I don't want to restart the server just because there is an error whenever I test the program. The error was a bookmark in word doesn't exist. OK... easy enough to fix, just add them.... Nope... The system keeps the word doc locked. I can't edit it. How can I get control of the word doc when ASP has started to edit it?
