VBA Macro to convert thousands of .doc files to .docx (Word 2011 for Mac)
Posted on 2016-09-17
I need a VBA Macro for Microsoft Word 2011 (Mac) that converts thousands of files in a given folder from .doc format to .docx format. The converted .docx files must be in full, true XML format (not "Compatibility Mode"). The script must cycle through the folder, converting 1 (one) file at a time, until all files have been converted. The faster, the better. There are 3 (three) additional requirements:
1. The macro must convert without prompting -- or skip -- any one of the .doc files that does not have recognizable encoding.
2. Formatting, tables, images, lists, etc. must not be lost upon conversion.
3. I need very specific, step-by-step instructions on exactly how to install and use it, because I have zero experience with that.
