Dispose word document after printing

Posted 20 June 2012 - 10:32 PM

I have to print some content using word document, so that I created word document and print content and its work very fine and I able to get desired result but the thing is that when i shut down my pc(not my application) it asked me to
save book1 and this kind of many dialog boxes which automatically close and pc shut down properly .
I want to avoid this dialog boxes and the main trouble is that when i use my application on laptop it asked me same dialog box but they don't close and i have to close all this dialog boxes manually.
Actually I don't want to save any document i only want print.
so any solution to how to dispose this word document properly I tried many ways but I still getting this dialog boxes.

I only pasting here my main code
  private void Print_PromNote(int iGridRowNo, decimal dInstallments)
   #region // Create & Print Word Document

                #region //The C# application developer starts Microsoft Word by creating a new Word application object:
                //Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application oWord = new Application();
                Word.Application oWord = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application();
                //By default Microsoft Word will be run invisibly in the background. However, it can be useful to see the document during the development phase of the project:
                //oWord.Visible = true;

                // the programmer just needs to create an object that will handle these missing values:
                object oMissing = System.Reflection.Missing.Value;

                //this object can be used when the new document is created:
                Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document oDoc = oWord.Documents.Add
                                      (ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing);
                #region //**Adding Paragraphs to a Microsoft Word Document with C#

                //The C# Programmer adds content to a Microsoft Word document by adding paragraphs:
                Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Paragraph oPara1;
                oPara1 = oDoc.Paragraphs.Add(ref oMissing);

                oWord.Activedocument.PageSetup.TopMargin = (float)150;
                oWord.Activedocument.PageSetup.LeftMargin = (float)150;
                oWord.Activedocument.PageSetup.RightMargin = (float)60;

                //Any formatting of the paragraph can take place at this point. For example the paragraph can be turned into a heading:
                object styleHeading1 = "Heading 1";
                oPara1.Range.set_Style(ref styleHeading1);
                oPara1.Range.Font.Underline = WdUnderline.wdUnderlineSingle;
                //And, of course, the programmer can add text to the paragraph:
                oPara1.Range.Text = "PROMISSORY NOTE";
                oPara1.Alignment = WdParagraphAlignment.wdAlignParagraphCenter;
                oPara1.Range.Font.Color= WdColor.wdColorBlack;
                oPara1.Range.Font.Name = "Engravers MT";
                oPara1.Range.Font.Size = 14;
                //oPara1.LineSpacing = 0.8f;
                //If further paragraphs are to be added then one final statement is required:

                //This statement ensures that adding further paragraphs will not overwrite the existing one. Any new paragraphs are added in exactly the same way:
                Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Paragraph oPara2;
                oPara2 = oDoc.Paragraphs.Add(ref oMissing);
                oPara2.Range.Text = sPN_Content;

You could try calling garbage collection i do this when using Excel although Calling the GC is not best pratice as far as i am aware but try it and see if i makes a difference

All GC.Collect() does is a very expensive call which allows garbage to be collected on all levels. It doesn't actually force collection.

Using this method it basically for proper basket cases.

When to call GC.Collect()

I can't see where in the OPs code is appropriate to use it, to be honest I wasn't sure if this is what OP meant by "dispose of document" but proper disposing should involve the Using Statement.

using (Document doc = new Document("C:\MyDoc.txt"))
     //"doc" in scope within these brackets

     document.name = "example";
     //more code
// Brackets left, "doc" now out of scope. Disposed and Closed automatically.
