Automating almost everything...
Posted on 2002-07-23
I have around 10.000 docs I need to do a certain job on each one of them. I can either hire 10 people and wait a month, or I can award the points (for the moment I am just giving 50) but I will increase once you say that it can be done...
So these 10.000 doc files, are in directories and subdirectories...
... the same
each subdirectory (OP, DP, NP) has about 60 DOCS in it, with random names...
What I have to do is open each one of these documents, in Word2000, go to the Menu Tools > Fix Broken Text (this is available for International users only)... and run this procedure. Then just save the file with the changes made...
Is there an automatic way of doing this, I mean entering in each directory/subdirectories, scanning for word files converting and saving? Or do I hire the data entry people?
As this is very imperative job, I am more than happy to award up to 1000 points to whoever gives me a working answer...
Thanks for your time
