Try ShellExecute() instead of Run()

Editing docx files in AutoIt is out of my league.

but ....

I searched for the term docx on the forums and it returned 42 results.

Have fun!

you could open it and edit the lines that way

@ripdad , same here, editing .txt files with autoit is easy but word files, Im clueless

Edit: you could look at the file using notepad then find the text (avoiding the formatting stuff) and edit it.

Again I havnt a clue, Im new

You could use #include <Word.au3> and

_WordDocFindReplace if you know what you want to change.

Saywell, thx for replying,

yes that would been possible. but as the script change the text, save it. send the doc somwhere, opens and change the text, it will be diffrent each time.

iv managed to make a temporary solution using controlsend and shift + home button and some other stuff that kinda works lol :graduated:

The problem with the Office 2007 and higher files is that they aren't normal files, they are a zip archive with all of the actual files inside that archive. The actual document is contained in the word folder, inside the document.xml file in the archive, you might be able to extract that file using one of the zip udfs and then manipulate the .xml file itself, and rezip it.
