Convert

Description

Converts a document to text, RTF, or HTML format.

Before you convert a document, you must open it by using the Open method. To make sure that the entire document is opened before the document is converted, set the OPENWaitOnOpen property to TRUE. Use the CanSaveAs property to check whether the document is completely processed and is ready for conversion.

To convert a document without viewing it, set the OPENMode property to 2 (open without generating a view).

Example

The following code converts a file to RTF:

Function ConvertToRTF(FileName As String, TargetFile As String) As Boolean 
KeyView.OPENMode = 2 
    nRet = KeyView.Open(FileName)
    If (nRet = 1) Then
        bRet = KeyView.Convert(“rtf”,TargetFile)
    End If
    bRet2 = KeyView.Close
    ConvertToRTF = bRet
End Function

In this example, OPENMode is set to 2 to prevent a view of the document.
