Use the Microsoft Interop.dll.

What you mean "import text is in MS Word"?
MS Word document stores text, images, tables many other things...

Why? Why using Word at all, if all formatting is lost?

The method used depends on document's format (doc or docx) and whether or not Word is installed on the target machine.

If Word is installed, you can use Word Interop and not worry about the document's format.

If the format is docx, then you can use the Open XML SDK to open the file and read it.

Add a reference to the Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word assembly, then try this:
Dim wordApp As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application()
Dim doc As Document = wordApp.Documents.Open("D:\Temp\MyDoc.docx")
Dim s As String = doc.Content.Text
You can then put the text where you like!
