"Command Failed" - when a Word dialog is cancelled
Exception generated when a Convert document dialog is cancelled

I have an add-in that uses some code to open a Word document. Normally this works well enough except if I try to open a non-Word document, Word shows me the convert dialog, if I cancel this dialog I get an error that is not being trapped by my try..catch block - here is the code

Word.Documents documents = app.Documents;
Word.Document document = null;
document = documents.Open(ref file, ref confirmConv, ref oReadOnly, ref addToMRU, ref a1, ref a2, ref a3, ref a4, ref a5, ref a6, ref a7, ref visible);
if (document != null)
if (documents != null)

Despite the try block, I still get the error window generated by Add-In Express - is there a way to trap this error?

Hi Sharad.

I don't see the 'catch' statement in your code.
