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.
