When you use Word to edit a document, you can save it in Word format as well as in other formats. But what if you need to convert a large number of already edited Word documents into text or other format documents? If you pass "Save as" it will be very time-consuming and laborious. Someone might have said that using Third-party tool software, that's another topic. Here I want to tell everyone is: Batch Conversion document format does not seek "person", completely can use WORD2000/XP itself with the function can complete the bulk conversion document format work. In order to describe the convenience, the following is a batch of Word document format converted into TXT text format as an example to introduce its conversion process, the specific methods of operation are as follows:
First, preparatory work
First, we set up two temporary folders, a Word document to be converted, a Word document for conversion, and another named "Text Document", which is a TXT format document that holds the transformation completed.
Second, the implementation of the conversion Wizard
From the Start menu, select New Office document, or select File/new. If you are using WORDXP, you will get a new document window pop-up on the right side of the screen, and you need to click Common templates in the New document window on the right side of the editing window.
Although the interface with the Transformation Wizard that uses different versions of Office may be slightly different, but there's a "Conversion wizard" feature that's consistent, and here in the US, we remind you that OfficeXP is used in this article. Also, if your office is not a custom installation, click the Convert Wizard You need to insert the Office CD.
Third, click the Other Documents tab in the New dialog box that pops up, and select Convert Wizard.
Next, in the Transition wizard dialog box that pops up, click the Next button.
Five, in the next dialog box to give two modes of conversion;
1. Convert other file formats into Word document formats;
2. Convert Word document formats to other file formats.
Six, in this article because we are to convert Word documents to TXT text document, therefore, you need to select the second (convert from Word document format to other file format) conversion mode, and then click the Drop-down arrow to select "Plain Text" (Office2000 text) from the Drop-down list, and click the Next button.
In the dialog box that continues to appear, select the source folder (the Word document to be converted) and the target folder (the text document), and then click the Next button.
In the New Pop-up dialog box, "Available files" lists all the Word documents in the "Word documents to be converted" folder. Click Next to select All (this is the only choice or one document) button to move them to the Convert file box, and then click Next.
Nine, when prompted the wizard is ready to convert files, you can click the Finish button to show a file conversion process status progress bar, where you can see the process of conversion, showing the total number of files and the number of files that have been converted.
When all the documents have been converted, a dialog box will pop up asking if any other conversions are required. Click "Yes" if necessary and click "No" if you don't need it.
