Simply you can use the following code to open the doc file and copy the content to memo and/or text file:

uses ComObj, clipbrd;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  WordApp : Variant;
  Range : Variant;
  i : integer;
  Selection : Variant;
begin
  WordApp := CreateOleObject('Word.Application');
  WordApp.Visible := false;
  Wordapp.documents.open('C:\YouDocFile.doc');
  Range := WordApp.Documents.Item(1).Range;
  WordApp.documents.item(1).select;
  WordApp.selection.copy;
  Memo1.lines.clear;
  Memo1.pastefromclipboard;
  Clipboard.Clear;
  Memo1.Lines.SaveToFile('C:\YouTextFile.txt');
  WordApp.documents.item(1).Close;
  WordApp.Quit;
end;

Open in new window

Here is the code for converting without using the clipboard:

uses ComObj;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
const
  wdDoNotSaveChanges = 0;
var
  WordApp : Variant;
  Range : Variant;
begin
  WordApp := CreateOleObject('Word.Application');
  WordApp.Visible := false;
  Wordapp.documents.open('C:\YouDocFile.doc');
  WordApp.Selection.ClearFormatting;
  Range := WordApp.Documents.Item(1).Range;
  WordApp.documents.item(1).select;
  Memo1.Lines.Text := WordApp.selection.text;
  Memo1.Lines.SaveToFile('C:\YouTextFile.txt');
  WordApp.ActiveDocument.Close(wdDoNotSaveChanges);
  WordApp.Quit;
end;
