When you map a non-repeating XML schema element to a Microsoft Office Word document, Visual Studio Tools for Office automatically adds an XMLNode control to your document. For information about mapping repeating XML schema elements, see How to: Add XMLNodes Controls to Word Documents.

The procedures are different for Word 2007 and Word 2003.

NoteNote:

The XMLNode control is not available from the Toolbox or the Data Sources window, and it cannot be created programmatically.

NoteNote:

Your computer might show different names or locations for some of the Visual Studio user interface elements in the following instructions. The Visual Studio edition that you have and the settings that you use determine these elements. For more information, see Visual Studio Settings.
