Issue with launching Word 2003 XML (WordML) documents with Word 2007 Beta 2 & VSTO 3 CTP

Post by sundaresan » Thu, 10 Aug 2006 06:08:13


Hi -

We had developed a Word 2003/VSTO 2.0 assembly that provides custom
features that are consumed by WordML documents.

When we tried to migrate this solution to Word 2007 Beta 2/ VSTO 3 CTP,
we get the following error during build:

C:\Program
Files\MSBuild\Microsoft.VisualStudio.OfficeTools.targets(96,9): error :
An error occurred while attempting to persist the data. The message
returned is: Unable to retrieve the manifest from the document. .

Questions:
1. Are WordML documents supported by Word 2007 Beta 2/VSTO 3 CTP?
2. If not, is there a documented approach to convert WordML documents
to Word 12 XML formats?

Your responses will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

2. Merging Word 2003 mail merge doc with Word 2003 table in Word 2007

We have a Word 2003 mail merge document which we merge with data in a Word
2003 table.
It worked fine when we were in Office 2003, but now that we have upgraded to
Office 2007, we get an error saying
"ED798FBB is a mail merge document. Word cannot find its data source,
H:/xxx.doc" and gives us the option to select the "Find Data Source" button.
When we browse for the data source, it comes up with the same message
"ED798FBB is a mail merge document. Word cannot find its data source,
H:/xxx.doc". (Don't know what the EDB798FBB refers to as it is not the name
of the document).

We have experienced this same problem with a different document before.
Any help appreciated.
