Using C# to Create a DOC File from Scratch

You can execute this snippet in your environment to see how Aspose.Words performs or check the GitHub Repository for other common usage scenarios.

// create a blank document
Document doc = new Document();
// the DocumentBuilder class provides members to easily add content to a document
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
// write a new paragraph in the document with the text "Hello World!"
builder.Writeln("Hello World!");
// save the document in DOCX format. 
// the format to save as is inferred from the extension of the file name.
doc.Save(dir + "output.docx");

Using C# to Export DOC to EPUB Format

Aspose.Words for .NET allows you to convert Microsoft Word® formats into bytes, HTML, EPUB, MHTML and other file formats. Following snippet demonstrates the conversion of a DOC file to an EPUB file:

// load the document from disc
Document doc = new Document(dir + "template.doc");
// save the document in EPUB format
doc.Save(dir + "output.epub");
