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
doc.quit(0);

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

Regards Hayden
