insert file

hi
I want to insert *.txt file to word document using VBA without ConfirmConversions

Sub Makro1()
     Selection.InsertFile FileName:="a2.txt", ConfirmConversions:=false
End Sub

The problem is:  Word sometimes interprets txt file (with txt extension) as HTML document.
For example, if file wherever contain string "<table>" word will interpred file as HTML (no matter that file is without </table> <html>, but if file contains <h2> gfghjfjreeee </h2> it is interpreted as text.)

So, I want to force Word to interprete any file with .txt extension as text without using ConfirmConversions:=true.

Under Tools, Options, General - is "confirm conversion at open" unchecked?  If so you shouldn't even need the ConfirmConversions code.

Problem is not with ConfirmConversions
I can state in VBA for do or don't do it.
I want to have ConfirmConversions = false, It is not problem.

Problem is  that word sometimes intrepretes txt file (with *.txt extension) as html. So I want to use convertor for txt.
If I select manualy from ConfirmConversions dialog  -Only Text
I will get good result, but if I don't use confirmation word badlz intrerprete txt file as html.

Not sure if I know how to do that without having the conversion box come up.  Will think about it.  In the meantime, maybe someone else here will be able to help you.

OK - I tried this - even with Tools, Options, Confirm Conversion at open to be true - this worked for me:

    Application.DisplayAlerts = wdAlertsNone
    Selection.InsertFile FileName:="yourfile", Range:="", _
        ConfirmConversions:=False, Link:=False, Attachment:=False

Hope it works for you too

Steel not good.
Code with Application.DisplayAlerts = wdAlertsNone
or withou this work identicaly.

I have in my txt file named a.txt this:

vlozit
<table>
obr1

I want to get this, but  using  this I get

vlozit
obr1

where obr1 is in new created table, because of word using wrong file converter.

It is clear, that your code can't influance strange and stupid word intelligence which interpretes txt file as HTML (especially in case when contained text is not valid HTML code) Do you test your code for txt file containing string <table>?
In may computer this don't work correctly.

So I have to force word to use correct convertor for txt. This convertor have index1.
Fileconverters(1)
I must select this convertor without any manual work (because I want to insert a lot of txt files). The possible way is automatically choose first item from the list in confirmation dialog, but I do not know code for this and in InsertFile is not any parameter determining which converter has to be used.
 
If I will not find how to force Word to use convertor I have to use statment Open Read Close.
