MS Word Makro for converting a Word Document

We have tested and may further extend the Makro. The tool seem to be mainly developed by Developed by Tania Hew 07/2008. We inserted the footnote conversion and corrected some other issues. To download latest Doc with Makro please visit: fcon - Word2DokuWiki (Makro).

Current status

The ouput below shows the current ability of the makro. Please compare with the test dcument itself. There are some deviations e.g. on merged cells within a table. Most of that can be improved if necessary.

current limits:

  • LF/CR ignored → should be turned into //...//
  • combined styles (e.g. BIU) ignored → should be turned into **//__ ... __//**
  • merged cells not resolved
  • text orientation within cells ignored
  • mail addresses not properly resolved → should be turned into < ... >
  • links with titles not properly resolved
  • comments and modification tracking not resolved

tests to be done:

  • embedded pictures and file objects
  • embedded graphics
  • colored text together with color plugin
  • Title, header and footer
