There was a question the other day in the Open XML SDK forum about inserting Continuous section breaks. Inspecting a document.xml file, you’d think it would be as simple as adding a SectionType child element to a SectionProperties element associated with a paragraph’s properties, as can be seen in the following Word Open XML:

  <w:type w:val=”continuous”/>
   <w:pgSz w:w=”11906″ w:h=”16838″/>
   <w:pgMar w:gutter=”0″ w:footer=”708″ w:header=”708″ w:left=”1417″ w:bottom=”1134″ w:right=”1417″ w:top=”1417″/>
   <w:cols w:space=”708″/><w:docGrid w:linePitch=”360″/>
</w:sectPr></w:pPr></w:p>

On January 10 2013 I blogged about what I think the future of Office programming technologies would be.

On June 18 2013 Microsoft blogged on this topic under the title “Roadmap for Apps for Office, VSTO, and VBA”. The content basically confirms that all three existing technologies (Open XML is not mentioned) will continue to be supported for the foreseeable future. It also briefly describes what the scenarios, pros and cons of the three are.
