    Dim WordApp As New Word.Application
    Dim WordDoc As Word.Document
   
    Set WordDoc = WordApp.Documents.Open("C:\a.doc")
    WordDoc.SaveAs "C:\a.html", wdFormatHTML
   
    WordDoc.Close
   
    Set WordDoc = Nothing
    Set WordApp = Nothing

You will need reference to MS Word

If you want pure text use wdFormatText  - Saves text without formatting. Converts all section breaks, page breaks, and new line characters to paragraph marks. Uses the ANSI character set. Use this format if the destination program cannot read any of the other available file formats.
