How to search-replace in word document with StringRegExpReplace ?

Recommended Posts


I know about _WordDocFindReplace () which does search-replaces in doc-file with instruments of MS Word.

But is it possible to do search-replaces with AutoIt regular expressions (StringRegExpReplace) in doc-file?

for example, I know how to do replaces with regular expressions in HTML-pages:


$oIE = _IECreate($someInternetLink, 0, 0)
$oSpans = _IETagNameGetCollection ($oIE, "span")
;~ ConsoleWrite(@extended)

For $oSpan In $oSpans
    $sOutput  = StringRegExpReplace($oSpan.innerText, "\s+", " ")
    _IEPropertySet($oSpan,"innertext", $sOutput)

$sHTML = _IEDocReadHTML($oIE)
$dFile = FileOpen($sPath,2)
If $dFile = -1 Then Exit
FileWrite($dFile, $sHTML)

but how to do the same thing in doc(x) files?
