Trouble publishing to a Word Doc

Gregory Vernon 님이 질문을 제출함. 2 May 2011
When I try to publish as a Word Doc, I recieve the following error
??? Error using ==> mxdom2word at 15
Microsoft Word must be installed to publish to this format.
Error in ==> publish at 183
Error in ==> mdbpublish at 55
outputPath = publish(file, options);
??? Error using ==> open at 68
NAME must contain a single string.
I DO have Microsoft Office (Word) installed, so I don't understand where the problem lies. Ideas?

The PUBLISH command attempts to start up Word as a COM server to perform the operation, so I think the real problem here is that MATLAB is unable to do that. You could verify this by running this command at the MATLAB prompt:
h = actxserver('Word.Application')
What error do you see?
Also, do you run MATLAB as administrator? Another option is to try starting Word as a COM server outside of MATLAB (potentially using a VBA script) to see if that works.

>> h = actxserver('Word.Application')
??? Error using ==> actxserver at 91
Server creation failed. Invalid ProgID 'Word.Application'
It makes no difference whether I run as administrator or not.
It looks like MS Word is not registered as a COM Server in the Windows Registry for some reason. Unfortunately, I don't have much experience with debugging this. Maybe you could try re-installing Word, or check with your system admin to see if starting Word as a COM Server is blocked?
