Saving a word, excel file

Hi, I was wondering if there is a way to create a button in Word that the user can click which would then save a the currently opened document to a database. I have already created a button for outlook to save an email. In that one I just copied the subject to the database. Now with a file I was wondering where to start with this task. The accessing the database part is the easy part.

Thanks

You can use IDataObject to get binary data of word documents and excel workbooks.

I am able to add this to the "File" menu of word then create this button next to the "save" or "save as" item. In that event how do I access the IDataObject to save it. I am sorry, but I am a little confused.

As I see you need to add a new item to the File menu and save the active document in the item click handler. In MS terms the item is a command bar button.
