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");

// save the document in EPUB format
doc.Save(dir + "output.epub");
