Try opening a .doc file with notepad and you'll see where you have gone wrong.

I said it only to point out that your used method makes no sense because a .doc file is a special file that's not readable like normal text.

You need Word to read a doc file, because Word knows how to read this special .doc file. Searching the wiki or forum, we find this: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=30461.

Good luck.
