Word New Document

Posted by: | August 28, 2009 | No Comment |

Lets add another function to our module for working with Word.  Its time to create a new word document

function New-WordDocument {
    $word = New-Object -ComObject Word.Application
    $word.Visible = $true
    $Word.Documents.Add() | Out-Null


Create the object for word as before.  Set the visible property to true (we can’t use it if we can’t see it)  We then add a document.  The Out-Null I found was necessary on my Windows 7 & Office 2010 combination because a lot of stuff was generated that I didn’t want to see.  Try it without on other combinations.  I don’t remember it being so bad with Word 2007
