PowerShell Script to export to HTML to MS Word Format

Hi, All.

I created a script to document AD information using consolidated PowerShell code for our environment to export to HTML.

Kindly see attached file.

I would like to seek support on how can I convert this to export from HTML to MS Word Format.

Regards,

You haven't posted a file, but an html file can be opened in Word and then saved as a Word document.

Because of the difference between the objectives of a Word document and a Web page, the appearance is unlikely to be the same.

As Graham says, Word can open HTML but it wont be as well formatted
appearance is unlikely to be the same

A good option is to use an API like Docverter. Docverter will allow you to convert HTML to PDF or DOCX using an API.

Also you can try following the steps here which have proved quite helpful to me in similar cases:

One other thought, if you already have a script producing the right data, and just want it in DOC format instead of HTML, why not just adjust the script to format and write to a DOC file rather than HTML?  It will take a bit more work but you can use Automation with Word to create a Word document and then save it in Powershell.  Here is a sample of the technique.

In the original question post, you said "see attached file", but there was no file attached.  Did you mean to share the script you created?

This expert suggested creating a Gigs project.
Just curious, why do you need it in Word versus HTML?

Looking at your script, and the mechanics of building a Word doc from PowerShell, this feels more like a Gig than a Question at this point, it's a fair amount of work an you are asking someone here to do it for you, rather than just looking for guidance on how to do it yourself.  You might want to post it over there to see if someone wants to do it for you for a fee.

If you do, I would recommend you post the existing HTML file, and/or a sample Word document that you want to be produced instead.  Also, the approach I mentioned above depends on having Word installed on the computer running the script, is that a reasonable assumption?
