This has been asked before but I can't find a post referencing to Word 2016.
I have Word 2016 on my PC, when I browse through the activeX class libraries, I cannot find any reference to word. I have gone through all the relevant looking microsoft libraries including office and nothing obvious to me.
My workaround is to use:
However, it would be great to know why I can't find word.application. Any pointers appreciated.
Also, when I try to look at the properties of a property node I get the following:
--> no properties
When I connect an activex property node I also get --> no properties, even though it clearly works in the online example. I am using LabVIEW 2017. I'm a bit lost.
there's this official snippet from this 2013 knowledge base article, to which I (strangely) can't link
"Read Text from a Microsoft Word Document in LabVIEW"
I will look into this tomorrow on a computer where I have MS word installed
I used the vi you posted to copy content -> text.
I found this link : https://knowledge.ni.com/KnowledgeArticleDetails?id=kA00Z0000019KZNSA2&l=en-IE
It appears I need to have LabVIEW 64 bit installed for it to allow me to access the 32 bit Word. I had a similar issue with MySQL, so maybe there is a workaround but personally, I am now downloading 64 bit LabVIEW!

This is exactly opposite of what the link says. The bitness must match. Are you sure that you have 32bit Word installed?
Whoops, I meant 64 bit LabVIEW to access 64 bit word!
