I honestly don't know. The way I was planning on trying to do it is the way
you describe. You will also need a DOP. One section of the spec describes
the layout of the streams. It says which parts all documents must have. Go
over these.

I believe all OLE documents are required to have a SummaryInformation stream
and maybe a DocumentSummaryInformation.

Hi all,
             As per the Ms Word Documentation, A word docfile consists of a
main stream, a summary information stream, a table stream, a data stream,
and 0 or more object streams which contain private data for OLE 2.0 objects
embedded within the Word document.

Right now I am trying to create a Doc file with only some text, which means
I need to create the main stream which has the text. Should I create the
other streams If I dont have any Tables, Pictures  or objects etc. Should I
need to use the Summary Information stream?

What I want to ask is by making an FIB, and the main stream with actual
Text, FKP's for CHP & PAP & STSH and just writing these streams will create
a Doc file??

Thanks & Regards

That makes sense.

Development is coming along nicely. Surprisingly, I am able to re-use a lot
of the old stuff. I don't have it to a point that I can actually do
anything, so I am holding off checking anything in. Ideally, if you could
put them off for a couple of weeks or even a month, I think I could have a
version that can do read and write...
