    Hi All,

    I have a word document I open with the following code, what I'm trying to do is search the document for a particular piece of text "[FILE_NUMBER]" that can reside in either the header, footer or body of the document.

    doc = new ActiveXObject("Word.Application");
    doc.Visible = false;
    doc.Documents.Open("C:\\Inetpub\\wwwroot\\biz_e_asset_new\\styles\\report_templates\\service_request_template3.doc", null, true);
    var oDocument=doc.ActiveDocument;
    //At this point I'd like to search the header,footer,body

    Does anyone know how to retrieve these pieces of content. Any help greatly appreciated!!!

    Regards Hayden
