im sorry but that link doesnt help at all. all it says is how to create excel file from asp.

Can anybody help me out? I have a similar problem.

What if i have a textbox in msword with HTMLName = tbox1. How do I read in the value of tbox1 from asp? assuming the text file is already uploaded by client and it is at server side.

My situation is that every client will have this template form in either WORD or EXCEL that they fill up and upload this form on an asp webpage. Browser then shows a similar webform but with most of values filled up with inputs from the uploaded form. Reason for such implementation is so that clients can keep local copies and cut short fillups of online forms.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Here's some code that allows you to open a Word file and then save it as an html file, you can then work with it a little easier. On my server I got a Server.CreateObject failed, but that's just because Word isn't installed on the server. I tried it on one of my own servers and it worked fine.

DIM objWord, objDoc, dlg
Set objWord = Server.CreateObject("Word.Application")
objWord.documents.open Server.MapPath("test.doc")
Set objDoc = objWord.documents(1).Content
Set dlg = objWord.dialogs(84)
dlg.Name = Server.MapPath("test.html")
dlg.Format = 8
SET objWord = Nothing
SET objDoc = Nothing
SET dlg = Nothing
Response.Redirect "test.html"
