    Word files


    Hey all,

    Wondering if you could help me with something...

    I have been reading text files into my system & doing varoius calculations on them etc...

    but..

    I want to now read in word documents...is there many changes I need to make...it will read the first bunch of characters before a space is read and then stop!

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers,
    Mike.

    Well, you might try reading this for a start if your really masochistic:

    Binary File Format for Word 97

    Also try:

    Wotsit

    They have some nice file format information.
