Formatting Word ducuments using Jacob

Hi all,

I am working on a project to generate Word documents from Java code and am using the Jacob bridge. I'm able to do most things I require but am having real trouble with applying a formatting style to a a section of text.

I generally work out the calls to make by creating a macro and converting the code it produces into Jacob calls. Setting the style to "Heading 1" will produce the macro code:

Selection.Style = ActiveDocument.Styles("Heading 1")

I have converted this as follows:

but this produces the following exception: Can't map name to dispid: Heading 1

Any ideas what's going wrong?

Thanks for any assistance.

I agree. Here's the link:
