DocSaveAs does not output HTML file properly

Reported by: cbishop@… Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


The output of xlabs.html is a text file in IE/Chrome/Firefox, it seems HTML header information is missing.

Local $oAppl1 = _Word_Create()

$Filehandle = _Word_DocOpen($oAppl1, "
fred\xlabs.docx",Default, Default, True)

If @error = 1 Then

MsgBox(0, "FAILURE!", "Unable to Create the WORD Object")

ElseIf @error = 2 Then

MsgBox(0, "FAILURE!", "File xlabs Status Report does not exist")


_Word_DocSaveAs($Filehandle,$TimelineFilePath & "\xlabs.html")

If @error Then MsgBox(0, "FAILURE", " Status Report was NOT Saved!", 3)

You're not saving it as an HTML file with that code, you're saving it as a Word document. Just because you name it with an HTML extension doesn't mean that it's going to save it as HTML. You need to add the file format parameter if you're saving it as something other than a Word document, in this case you need to use $WdFormatHTML as the file format parameter.
