.NET compatible Diff DLLWordConverterX (WCX) is a file convert component/DLL designed to assist you, the developer, to quickly add a document conversion utility to your application.  A tool like this can be very helpful when the native binary format of Word/Excel documents is not acceptable.  HTML, Text, RTF, and CSV are amongst the favorite file formats requiring conversion.

Convert Component

In addition to doing file conversion, WCX also adds enhanced features and basic data massaging methods to further enhance its usefulness.  For example, whole directories and sub-directories of files may be specified to be converted.  Furthermore, after conversion is done, special processing can be performed on the converted files. Some of these special processing methods include concatenation of all files converted, and removal of empty lines.  If you have your own special processing you would like done, then WCX facilitates this by keeping an internal array of the fully qualified path of the converted files.

For those who are focusing their conversion efforts in the realm of spreadsheet files, you'll be pleasantly surprised.  WCX has special processing methods to concatenate, crop and massage comma delimited files.  This allows you to specify what sheet(s), row(s), and/or column(s) that you may be interested in extracting.

WCX encapsulates all the details required for quick integration.  Furthermore, two sample Visual Basic applications are provided to get you up to speed quickly with this convert component.  Both Visual Basic sample programs do similar things, however one demonstrates using an convert component, and the other the convert DLL (Dynamic Link Library) interface.  Although you may not be using Visual Basic, the approach for all development environments will be similar.

Simply install the product, and add the conversion component - conversion DLL to your development environment.  Once in place the routines can be accessed to programmatically convert Word, Excel or other file types.  The code required to integrate this component in an application is relatively small considering the functionality it provides.

Please Note: This product automates MS Word or Excel to convert the files. Therefore MS Word or Excel will be required.  The user is encouraged to make sure Word or Excel is properly licensed on the PC.
