Wondering how to make a new doc in Word through asp.net. I used to be able to do this easily in VB6 (sigh, the good old days), but am having problems with this big time. If I reference the word object, I get errors regarding security or access. If I even Dim aDoc as new Word Document I get errors. Nothing seems to work, and the error messages are not very helpful.
I could really use some help with this, and any help is greatly appreciated.

Hey Mr. Beer,
I hate to reply with "you should try asking someplace else", but VB.Net get's into some difficult issues when dealing with cross-platform issues, particularly COM Automation. :( We're just not that experienced with these kinds of complexities here.
The guys in our sister-forum at Extreme .Net Talk (http://www.dotnetforums.net/index.php?), specifically, in the Interoperation / Office Integration Forum (http://www.dotnetforums.net/f59), hovever, deal with these sorts of issues a lot more often and I think will have a better chance at being able to handle your question.
Sorry to punt like this, but I'll watch over it on the "other side" if you post there and hopefully I'll learn something about this along with you...
