Re: [Clip] Extracting text from WORD files
- Robin, Larry,
I had to do this for a couple of hundred of files once. What follows
is a very quick and dirty clip (warning!), which opens the documents
in Word (one at a time), and copies the text to NoteTab. The document
is then saved with the same name plus a txt-extension... If all files
are processed the clip should stop.
Please note that you should have Word open - and that there should be
no document loaded in Word before you start the clip. (This can be
fixed by changing the FocusApp line...); the following clip assumes
the title bar of MS Word only shows Microsoft Word.
^!If ^%X% > ^%Files0% END
^!FocusApp "Microsoft Word"
^!Keyboard #^%Files^%X%%# ENTER
^!Keyboard CTRL+A CTRL+C CTRL+W
^!Save AS "^%Files^%X%%.txt"
