Hi,

 

You have to be more specific..  What do you really mean by converting "any" file format to text??  

Are you looking for some sort of converter software, such as .pdf to text?  

OR

Do you want to convert some other types of ascii file to simple text?

 

What is it that you want to convert?

 

"Any" is too ambiguous...   Because an executable (.exe) is a file, and so are image files (ie:  .jpg, .png, etc), as well as sound file (.wav).  Do you want to convert those to text as well?

 

Please explain what you are trying to do.

Hi vamsi v,

do you really mean every file format? Can you be more specific?

If you need it without structure, then you can use the "Read from Text File" function.

It really depends what's in the "any" file and what you want in the output file. Can you attach anexample?

 

 

(For example, if you have a collection of digital images taken at the zoo, should one of the text files contain the text "This is Bob riding on an Elephant"? :D)

 

 

One possible "universal converter" would format any file into a hex formatted file of twice the size. Is that what you want?

 

Are you looking for UU-encoding, MIME, Base 64, BinHex, etc. or similar??

You've already asked this question here, and even marked Mike's reply as a solution.

 

What do you really want?  A flippant answer would be this:

 

 

 

since you never said anything about the "text" being human-readable.

Hi Vamsi,

 

Just to be clear..  Do you mean a MS Word document (.doc)?

 

If so, then you have to use ActiveX.  Do a search on Word doc ActiveX and look at some of the code examples that were posted.  You'll have to extract the unformatted text information (basically the text you are interested in).

Actually, you have another thread on this topic.  Please keep the discussion to one single thread.

Someone posted an example for you in your other thread here
