Hello

I have a Word add-in that allows me to upload the open document to a repository.
If I have the document on the local disk, it does it perfectly, but if I have the document in the cloud, for example in "OneDrive", I fail to upload it, since the active document acquires a remote route and not a local, causing an error:
"The format provided in the path is not supported"

To read the path of the active document I use the following lines of code:
Word.Document activeDocument = this.document;
String localFileName = activeDocument.FullName;


Can you help me with this?
Regards.

Hello Josep,

Are you saying that the exception occurs when you execute one of these lines?

Hi Andrei,

No, that is, if I open a local document with Word activeDocument.FullName it takes a local value for example "C:\\ MyDocuments\\test.docx" and this allows my add-in to take the file and upload it to a repository, instead if the document that I open is in "OneDrive" it takes a remote value for example "https://onedrive.live.com/?id=5B320346DFC016BD%21146&cid=5B320346DFC014GT" this causes the error, since it is not a valid local path.

I do not know if they have any tool that allows me to download the OnDrive document and when it is opened with Word, acquire a local path or some other suggestion?

Hi,

I solved it, applying the saveAs(), I save the document on the local disk and with this, I can upload to my repository.
Thank you.
