Hi,

How do I trap a Word document close event using Add-in Express ? I would like to import the saved document into a database, but the DocumentBeforeSave event can't be used, because the document is not saved at this time... (and may never be saved i the user clicks "No").

Kind Regards
Sune

Hi Sune,

You can use the DocumentBeforeClose event of AddinExpress.MSO.ADXWordAppEvents class.

Hi Eugene

The DocumentBeforeClose event is fired before the "Save" event. Futher more, if the user hits the save button (not closing the document) then DocumentBeforeClose is not fired.

I have come up with solution where I in the DocumentBeforeSave event saves the document, write it to the database at set "Cancel" to true. But is this the best way? I'm missing a DocumentAfterSave event :D

Hi Sune,

Unfortunately there is no such event in the Word Object Model.
