Type: System.String

The path and file name of the new PDF or XPS file.

Type: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdExportFormat

One of the WdExportFormat values that specifies whether to save the document in PDF or XPS format.

Type: System.Boolean

true to open the new file automatically; otherwise, false.

Type: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdExportOptimizeFor

One of the WdExportOptimizeFor values that specifies whether to optimize for screen or print.

Type: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdExportRange

One of the WdExportRange values that specifies whether the export range is the entire document, the current page, a range of text, or the current selection. The default is to export the entire document.

Type: System.Int32

Specifies the starting page number, if the Range parameter is set to wdExportFromTo.

Type: System.Int32

Specifies the ending page number, if the Range parameter is set to wdExportFromTo.

Type: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdExportItem

One of the Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdExportItem values that specifies whether the export process includes text only or includes text with markup.

Type: System.Boolean

true to include document properties in the new file; otherwise, false.

Type: System.Boolean

true to copy Information Rights Management (IRM) permissions to an XPS document if the source document has IRM protections; otherwise, false. The default is true.

Type: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdExportCreateBookmarks

One of the WdExportCreateBookmarks values that specifies whether to export bookmarks and the type of bookmarks to export.

Type: System.Boolean

true to include extra data to help screen readers, such as information about the flow and logical organization of the content; otherwise, false. The default is true.

Type: System.Boolean

true to include a bitmap of the text; false to reference the text font. Set this parameter to true when font licenses do not permit a font to be embedded in the PDF file. If you set this to false, the viewer's computer substitutes an appropriate font if the specified one is not available. The default is true.

Type: System.Boolean

true to limit PDF usage to the PDF subset standardized as ISO 19005-1; otherwise, false. If you set this parameter to true, the resulting files are more reliably self-contained but may be larger or show more visual artifacts due to the restrictions of the format. The default is false.

Type: System.Object

A pointer to an implementation of the IMsoDocExporter interface that enables the document to be saved in a different fixed format. For more information, see Extending the Office (2007) Fixed-Format Export Feature.

You can save as a PDF or XPS file from Microsoft Office Word only after you install an add-in that provides this feature. For more information, search for "Enable support for other file formats, such as PDF and XPS" on Office Online.

For information on optional parameters, see Optional Parameters in Office Solutions.
