OK, here's the scoop:
I'm a web developer that has a site where my client uploads Word Documents. The Word Docs are chopped-up and put into a more HTML-friendly format. Recently, my client has upgraded to Word 2001 ON A MAC!! ;|
Consequently, the XML islands and stylesheet junk make the files unusuable....unless they are cleaned by the..."OFFICE HTML FILTER 2.0" TA DA! (which is, of course, unavailable for the Mac.)
for this filter.)
My quest is to put the corresponding DLL on to the server (MSfilter.dll) and automatically clean the HTML files using ASP.
My problem is that I cannot find the progID for MSfilter.dll. So, I've tried to create an ActiveX DLL "wrapper" with a public interface. (see "HOWTO: Programmatically Use the HTML Filter DLL to Save Word Documents as Plain HTML" http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q291/3/25.ASP
However, for some odd reason, calling the ActiveX wrapper DLL from the server does not filter the file.
Someone please help me!
