How to read data from large word docs
Tool has to read all the headings and tables, update all the fields in database for each requirement. some times all requirements will be in same table, set of tables, individual table for each req or other format. User has to define his own templete to export the list of reqiurements to the tool with heirarchial stucture like 1. Intriduction, 1.1 Hard ware reuiremnsts,1.1.1.Special rquirement....
1). I tried using Word's COM component. For 30 pages of doc, it has taken 6 min. Issue is it should not take more than 5-6 secs.
2). Tried with word->xml, very difficult to identify the headings and tables. Issues are client may not have office, word2000 is not supporting the xml conversion, conversion and reading data at server side will cause performance.
Please let me know better approach for this.
Thanks & regards,
