People always want documents in a different format. If you have Microsoft Word this utility will get you a long way to a lot of formats.

All it does is load an HTML file into Word and save it using the output filters of Word. The documentation is a bit vague on what the constants/index for the file formats are so you might have to get notepad out and edit this file if you want some other format or if you use .TXT as your output format. If you know the integer constant/index of the file format you want then this can be given as a parameter to htmltodoc.js


Depending on how you have scripting set up one of the following 3 methods will convert html to another format.

cscript htmlTOdoc.js htmlfile outfile {fileFormat}

wscript htmlTOdoc.js htmlfile outfile {fileFormat}

htmlTOdoc.js htmlfile outfile {fileFormat}

If you want to find the output formats that Word supports then here is a utility that will dump them to a text file formats.txt.


Here is a typical result. As you can see they don't actualy make much sense so you will have to experiment. Any help here appreciated!
