In this tutorial i am going to explain about how to read word file in ASP.Net,C#.Net and VB.Net

In my previous article i have explained about Convert Dataset Datatable To Json Data Array,SQL Script To Drop Multiple Tables,Procedures At Once In Sql Server,Highlight,Change Color Of Row On Mouseover In Grid View Using CSS - C#.Net ASP.Net VB.Net,Programmatically Group Gridview Column Headers,How To Convert JSON Data Into Html Table Using Javascript JQuery,Upload Multiple Files In Asp.Net C#.Net VB.Net / Maximum Request Length Exceeded and many articles in C#.Net,ASP.Net,VB.Net,Grid View,Javascript,jQuery,SQL Server and many other topics.


I have created a nes asp.net website and added default.aspx file in the project. In the aspx file i have included file upload control and a button control to process the upload and a text box control to show the content of the word file. The complete markup is given below.

HTML Markup:

Read Word Files in ASP.Net,C#.Net & VB.Net

Select Word File
Content of the word file is given below:-

Before trying to write code to read word file in ASP.Net,C#.Net and VB.Net please add the Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word reference to your project. After that below is the code to read the word file and display it in the textbox.

C#.Net:
protected void btnUpload_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    //Uploading file to server
    fuWordFile.SaveAs(Server.MapPath(fuWordFile.FileName));
    //Getting Filename
    object filename = Server.MapPath(fuWordFile.FileName);
    //Initiating Application Class
    Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass AC = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass();
    Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document doc = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document();
    object readOnly = false;
    object isVisible = true;
    object missing = System.Reflection.Missing.Value;
    //Reating the word document and adding it to textbox
    try
    {
        doc = AC.Documents.Open(ref filename, ref missing, ref readOnly, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref isVisible);
        TextBox1.Text = doc.Content.Text;
        AC.Documents.Close();
    }
    catch (Exception ex)
    {
        //Error Handling
    }
}

VB.Net:
Protected Sub btnUpload_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
 'Uploading file to server
 fuWordFile.SaveAs(Server.MapPath(fuWordFile.FileName))
 'Getting Filename
 Dim filename As Object = Server.MapPath(fuWordFile.FileName)
 'Initiating Application Class
 Dim AC As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass()
 Dim doc As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document()
 Dim [readOnly] As Object = False
 Dim isVisible As Object = True
 Dim missing As Object = System.Reflection.Missing.Value
 'Reating the word document and adding it to textbox
 Try
  doc = AC.Documents.Open(filename, missing, [readOnly], missing, missing, missing, _
   missing, missing, missing, missing, missing, isVisible)
  TextBox1.Text = doc.Content.Text
  AC.Documents.Close()
   'Error Handling
 Catch ex As Exception
 End Try
End Sub

  1. There is another way to read word file in C#/.NET without installing MS office on your system/server is by using Aspose.Words for .NET Library. You can not only read word file but can also write/edit existing or new word file and can create new word file and convert your word documents to many other supported formats in c#/.net.
