A way to import content from many word documents into htm files
Posted on 2005-04-20
Hi, thanks in advance for your help.
I am not sure if there is a way to do this given my setup by hopefully someone will prove me wrong.
I am using frontpage for my websites and I have a lot of content in word documents that I have written in the past that I would like to put online. Ah, but wait there's more.
1. The word documents all have the same template, i.e. a table with many rows (i.e. 1 for title tag, one for meta, one for description, and one for the actual content). The content portion can include for instance 1 or more headlines, bullet formatting, and any combination of formatting really, etc. The title of the word document also corresponds to the title of the htm page that I want to create out of it eventually.
2. I do not want to manually import each of these files by hand as that would take up a lot of time.
3. I prefer to use the .htm file extension and thus this may preclude the use of server side coding (???).
Let's say I have hundreds of these word documents already completed, is there a nice and efficient way in your expert opinion to accomplish this goal? I am open to any ideas. It doesn't have to be a perfect solution but as long as it can save me oodles of time I will be more than grateful. Thanks a lot, I appreciate it.
