Help with autoit and Word 2003 .docx extention

6 posts in this topic

I am trying to write a script that will remove the password from some 6K files Microsoft Word docx files. The same password on each file, so that is no problem. I can open the file and save it as a new file and it all works great. The problem is that The _WordDocSave does not want to save as a docx - I can do .doc .xml and other types but I cannot figure out how to do .docx. Any help is appreciated. The sample script below will demonstrate the problem.

; *******************************************************

; Example 1 - Open an existing word document, append some text,

; save and quit.

; *******************************************************

;

#include <Word.au3>

Local $oWordApp = _WordCreate(@ScriptDir & "\aTest.docx")

Local $oDoc = _WordDocGetCollection($oWordApp, 0)

$oDoc.Range.insertAfter("This is some text to insert.")

_WordDocSave($oDoc)

_WordQuit($oWordApp)

I might have just answered my own question - it looks like there is an undocumented type 12 that will save as a docx. Have more testing to do but it looks like this.,

; *******************************************************

; Example 1 - Open an existing word document, append some text,

; save and quit.

; *******************************************************

;

#include <Word.au3>

Local $oWordApp = _WordCreate()

Local $oDoc = _WordDocGetCollection($oWordApp, 0)

$oDoc.Range.Text = "This is some text to insert."

_WordDocSaveAs($oDoc, @ScriptDir & "aTest.docx", 12)

_WordQuit($oWordApp)

I don't know if the Word UDF works with docx. I didn't find anything when searching the forum. But you can always do it yourself:

$word.ActiveDocument.SaveAs("C:testtest.docx" )
$word.Application.Quit
