NX Journal - Access Microsoft DLL/Namespaces in Imports Statement

NX Journal - Access Microsoft DLL/Namespaces in Imports Statement

NX Journal - Access Microsoft DLL/Namespaces in Imports Statement

(OP)
I would like to run a journal, without having to compile it, which references Microsoft Word functions, using:

CODE

Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word 

I have the DLL in the same folder as my journal .vb code, but NX complains:

Quote:


Warning: Namespace or type specified in the Imports 'Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word' doesn't contain any public member or cannot be found. Make sure the namespace or the type is defined and contains at least one public member. Make sure the imported element name doesn't use any aliases.

Is this even possible? Am I supposed to have the DLL in a different location?

Thanks,
Jeff

RE: NX Journal - Access Microsoft DLL/Namespaces in Imports Statement

If you are using a .net language and running your code as a journal (uncompiled source file), then this is not possible, unfortunately. Journals automatically reference some of the .net dll's, but no other references can be added. This is a built-in limitation of journals. For a list of the dll's that every journal can access, scroll down to the "journal fundamentals" section on this page.

If you have a .net author license, you can compile your code and add references to any dll files you wish (including MSOffice).

Unfortunately, that is what I feared. Thanks for confirming.
