Convert Word docs to HTML?

Post by grantb » Mon Sep 18, 2017 2:55 am

Is there a way to use TextPipe to convert MS Word docs to HTML, and other formats, rather than just text?

Not currently. What are you needing to do with the files?

TextPipe handles conversions quite well; I was wanting to use it to convert Word docs to HTML for import into HTML Help projects. No matter; I'll use Cygwin and LibreOffice to do it instead. It's a bit slower, but it will also handle conversions to other formats, like PDF. Thanks! :)

Have you heard of AutoIt ?

See https://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit/

You could write an AutoIt script to make MS Word open each file and save it to HTML format.

I've successfully used AutoIt to make MS Word open each file in a folder and save it to RTF format.
