ASP.NET (C#) Question

Read from word document line by line



I'm trying to read a word document using C#. I am able to get all text but I want to be able to read line by line and store in a list and bind to a gridview. Currently my code returns a list of one item only with all text (not line by line as desired). I'm using the Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word library to read the file. Below is my code till now:

Application word = new Application();
Document doc = new Document();

object fileName = path;
// Define an object to pass to the API for missing parameters
object missing = System.Type.Missing;
doc = word.Documents.Open(ref fileName,
ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing,
ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing,
ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing,
ref missing, ref missing, ref missing);

String read = string.Empty;
List<string> data = new List<string>();
foreach (Range tmpRange in doc.StoryRanges)
{
//read += tmpRange.Text + "<br>";
data.Add(tmpRange.Text);
}
((_Document)doc).Close();
((_Application)word).Quit();

GridView1.DataSource = data;
GridView1.DataBind();

Answer

Ok. I found the solution here.


The final code is as follows:

    Application word = new Application();
    Document doc = new Document();

    object fileName = path;
    // Define an object to pass to the API for missing parameters
    object missing = System.Type.Missing;
    doc = word.Documents.Open(ref fileName,
            ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing,
            ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing,
            ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing,
            ref missing, ref missing, ref missing);

    String read = string.Empty;
    List<string> data = new List<string>();
    for (int i = 0; i < doc.Paragraphs.Count; i++)
    {
        string temp = doc.Paragraphs[i + 1].Range.Text.Trim();
        if (temp != string.Empty)
            data.Add(temp);
    }
    ((_Document)doc).Close();
    ((_Application)word).Quit();

    GridView1.DataSource = data;
    GridView1.DataBind();
