Creating a Data-Bound Customized Word Document with VSTO

We can create a similar data-bound document in Word using bookmarks rather than named ranges and a data grid rather than an Excel List object. Create a new Word document project and again add the Northwind database as a data source to the Data Sources pane. Visual Studio should remember the connection string from last time, so you will not need to configure it again.

Unfortunately, in this version of VSTO, there is no way to bind a data table to a Word table as you can with an Excel list object.

When we build and run the customized Word document, again we have a master-detail view of a data table running in Word without writing a single line of code.
