@Alexander Kojevnikov: Thanks for your help 4 because you put me on the right track. However 3 I found I had to apply the .GoTo to the 2 Word Selection object, not the Document. As 1 in:

    Dim what As Object = Word.WdGoToItem.wdGoToLine
    Dim which As Object = Word.WdGoToDirection.wdGoToLast

    //below line had no effect
    //d.GoTo(what, which, Nothing, Nothing)

    w.Selection.GoTo(what, which, Nothing, Nothing)
Score: 8

This is how it looks in C#:

object missing = Missing.Value;
object what = Word.WdGoToItem.wdGoToLine;
object which = Word.WdGoToDirection.wdGoToLast;
doc.GoTo(ref what, ref which, ref missing, ref missing);

I guess it will 2 be even easier in VB.Net as it supports 1 optional parameters.

I'm not sure I'm using the same environment 2 as you, but to go to the start or end of the document 1 here's what works for me:

Private Sub moveCursorToStartOfDocument()
    w.Selection.HomeKey(WdUnits.wdStory, Nothing)
End Sub

Private Sub moveCursorToEndOfDocument()
    w.Selection.EndKey(WdUnits.wdStory, Nothing)
End Sub

I use unit Word_TLB in Delphi with Appliction 3 object- Word.Application

as following:


generally end of word document is:

Selection.EndKey( WdUnits.wdStory, WdMovementType.wdMove)

When 2 I use

Selection.GoTo(Word.WdGoToItem.wdGoToLine, Word.WdGoToDirection.wdGoToLast, Nothing, Nothing);

new content was insert before last 1 line.

The easiest way to figure out an outline 6 for the actual code is to record a macro 5 in Word for that specific action. Then you 4 can modify the generated code to suit different 3 syntax(s) of VB, VB.NET, C# etc.

The code 2 snippet below demonstrates the usage for 1 a VB.NET application:

Imports wordNmSpace = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word
' Create an object for the application instance
objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")

' Create a reference of the selection object within Word
objSelection = objWord.Selection

' Now comes the part where you move selection position to the end of document
objSelection.endof(wordNmSpace.WdUnits.wdStory, wordNmSpace.WdMovementType.wdMove)

Hope this helps.
