    Our company is currently in the process of upgrading from OfficeXP to Office 2007 and converting our microsoft office templates to .NET.

    In VB6.0 & VBA, when debugging code I have two windows open, one window is the Word document, the second window contains the code and as I step thru the code I can observe the actions being performed in the Word document window.

    When debugging in .NET - when I split my window views, Word document in one window, code in the other window. As I debug the Word window is blank and does not refresh the view, or display actions performed. it makes debugging difficult.


    My question is:
    is there anyway I can display actions occuriing in my Word window (or when Im coding in another microsoft application)?
    Do you know why this would occur?
    Is it a technical limiation of .net?


    Many thanks

    Did you every receive and answer? This is certainly "normal" behavior for .Net when stepping through code in a .Net application, so I would not be surprised to see the same thing when working with an Office application as well.
