WordConverterX (WCX) is an DLL/ActiveX component designed to allow developers to quickly add a document conversion utility to their programs. Such a tool is helpful when the native binary format of Microsoft Word/Excel documents is not acceptable. RTF, HTML and Text are amongst the favorite formats used with this conversion tool.
If you need to quickly create a file converter then look no further. Simply cut and paste the provided VB source and your there. The supplied code also illustrates how to create a command line driven program (see FAQ for this portion of the demo source). In fact, the code for WordConverterEXE is the example program provided.
Formats supported are shown below:
SoftInterface's FindInFilesX product (a text search and report component) can be combined with WCX to search Word and Excel documents as text or HTML files. WordDocDiff demonstrates this in an application, also available for download.
