Convert RTF file to TXT

6 posts in this topic

Rich text editor, editor_4efa0ebd77e87, press ALT 0 for help.

I need to convert an existing rtf file to a txt file. I am currently using _WordDocSaveAs to do this and it works but I need to do this in the background and there does not appear to be an option to prevent Microsoft Word from opening up. Is there an option to make Word open in the background or is there generally a better method to go about this?

Current code:

#include <Word.au3>
$oWordApp = _WordCreate ("")
$FilePath = "S:\Tasks.rtf"
$NewFilePath = "S:\TasksNew.txt"
$oDoc = _WordDocOpen ($oWordApp, $FilePath)
_WordDocSaveAs($oDoc, $NewFilePath, 4)
_WordDocClose ($oDoc)
_WordQuit ($oWordApp)

Hi, Texan. You should be able to do something like this if you don't want the file to open.

FileCopy("C:Test.rtf", "C:Test.txt", 1)

Use FileMove if you want to delete the original.

JLogan3o13,

I think the OP wants to remove all the RTF formatting from the text rather then just rename the file. :)

Well, picky picky :) My apologies on the bad advice, Texan. Xeno is correct, you should be able to set the visibility right within the _WordCreate func.

I think, the _GUICtrlRichEdit_.. functions should help :)
