    Does anyone know of any "translation" php code or sources of information that will allow me to write such to be able to read file formats such as Winword ?

    The reason is I have a massive legacy system mostly in Word for Windows that I need to automate.

    Thanks

    You might be able to find some command-line utility that can to the conversion from winword to clear text (assuming that is what you want to do) and call it with back-quotes from your script like this:

    `command file.doc file.txt`;
