CHM to theWord general book

Post by WJSwanepoel »

Has anybody converted a CHM file to a general book in theWord? Is it possible to do and how can it be done?

I can quite easily convert the CHM into HTML files. Is it possible to import all of them into theWord at once?

Hi Willem, try theWord importer tool. Use the Disk files tab. Check if the html files you dumped out have the generic <title> </title> tags and adjust to what regex you need to pick them up if needed and it should produce something....

Thank you Jon, I managed to import everything. The resulting module still needs quite a bit of word, but it surely beats doing a copy/paste of everything.

I appreciate the help!
