Word 2010 add-ins saveas html error - excellent

Saving multiple Word documents as HTML through Office API

I have a large amount of Word documents that I need to parse. As they all were created from the same template, I think that the best approach would be to save them as HTML files and parse the HTML itself.

While it's quite easy to save a single Word document as HTML, I haven't found a way to do a bulk procedure from inside Word. Thus, I'm trying to find a way to leverage the Microsoft Office/Word API to accomplish this.

How can I use the Word API to save many Word documents as HTML?

Thanks in advance.

UPDATE: A few more details...

Some of the documents are of extension , while others are . I hope that this isn't a problem, but if it is, I'll just have to convert them all to , hopefully with the API or with DocX.

Speaking of DocX, I saw on the author's blog that it's possible to save a file as HTML with the following code:

Is this the best way to do it?

Using moodle_quiz_v11 in Word 2010 - error

This discussion has been locked so you can no longer reply to it.

Hello everybody,

I've been a happy user of this great template for a few years. Last week I upgraded to MS Word 2010 and today I got an error message when first trying to export a quiz.

Run-Time error 5151
Aplication can't read the document. Probably it is damaged.

But doing the the CleanUp function shows no error.

Anybody has the same problem? Thanks for any answer.

Just a short "update". I downloaded and tried an improved version of the template, but I get the same error. I also include a screen capture of the debug info. Could enybody help please?

Am I really the only one who has this strange problem with MS Word?

Hi Vlad

i thougt, that i am the only one. tried to fix it in many ways an did not find any solution, but by coincidence, there was suddenly a file, witch works, i have no idea why...

if you open the word template, it doesnt work, if you open the document "vorlage" and do: "save as...", it works.

Unfortunately, the template is translated in German. but i made some more features:

  • generalfeedback, questiontitle, numerical question (with tolerance!), fix or nonfix answers in mc and matching questions, path/categorie in header (and imagename like header)

so check it out!

Nice job.  Have you found out if there is an engluish version....?

Yeah, I can figure out the styles, but not the error messages.

Hi Lael,

Thanks for making your modified version available! 

Just wanted to let you know that it appears that your link has broken and currently gives the error: "Sorry, the requested file could not be found"

Regards,

-Matt.

Hi Lael, it is really nice to see you giving updates regularly.

I used word2010 to save xml for moodle quiz from example.docx but it gave me run time error 13 (type mismatch) and debug stops at  Set objStream = CreateObject("ADODB.Stream").

Am I doing anything wrong?

Thanks in advance

Hi Shiva,

I believe example is the one that came with the quiz when I first got it. It won't work. You need to use the one called CopyPasteEditThisOnefor2010

Do what it says ata Copy, Paste it and Edit it and it should (fingers crossed) work fine. Let me know how you go.

Yes, it is working ata tele!!

You are so nice!

Great to hear!

Actually the example *should* work as well. Just realised it is one I made, not one I inherited. Maybe just make sure you don't move it out of the folder? I just tried it and it seems to work ok for me?

Thanks & Thanks

There must be some problem with my Word Installations (i had so many add ins -all for moodle questions- installed) I clean installed. Now even example is working ma

Hi,

Im also getting the same run time error with word 2010. Im a newbie to this so may have stuffed up ata. I loaded the copypasteedit template into word then edited it and saved it with a new name. Did i do it right? Wasnt sure what copy paste edit meant exactly since there wasnt anything in the doc to copy.

Colin

Hi Colin, 

Sorry, I didn't see this earlier. copy and paste the document and then rename it and edit it. Let me know how you go.

Lael

I have tried both "example" and "CopyPasteEditThisoneforWord2010" files, but still not work! it shows error as attached print screen.

Thank you.

I would like to do this as well as a couple of other fixes. I don't have the time to do them myself. If someone is able to contribute funding I know of someone who can work on it.

Hi, how did you import pictures into the Question? My images fail to import once I publish the Word XML file. Once I import the file into Moodle, the images clearly seen in Word 2010 do not appear. My source image files are in jpeg or gif and they fail to appear. I tried to use the paste function after I entered the question and still no luckfa'anoanoa. Thanks

Hi All,

i am using moodle quiz_v21, whenever i am trying to put equation in my multiple choice questions its not coming in xml.

For example when i type 4/3 it is fine but if i use the equation editor to type like 4/3 then it does not come.

It only shows blank

i dont know what to do... could you please help

How are you doing this, are you creating the equation in word and then pasting it into the Moodle question field. What do you see if you click the HTML button on the Moodle editor button?

i am just inserting the equation in word as shown in the above screen shot.

Thanks,

can anybody help me..please!

I know its a few years old.. but this is great.. 

Spent the last two days playing with other ways but for Bulk loading of Essay type questions but this is the way to go.. 

thank you, thank you.. 

Many hours saved.. !!!!

Hi, everyone!

I've got a little problem with moodle_quiz_v21. I have a lot of questions that have several lines of text for question name, title and answers. This module only understands questions that have only one line of text. Can anyone help me to modify this module to export questions with several lines of text. 

Another problem is that this module creates simple text, but not html. Sometimes it is very important to have question text with some html tags, like <strong>, <i> etc....

Excuse my bad English ata

This module only understands questions that have only one line of text.

Anatoliy, it's not true ata

Please read the comment in file example.docx: "Question Names (titles) are optional. You NEED them for any question that is longer than two lines, or Moodle will not import the question."

Word is close to the worst HTML editor in the world. The code is bloated and the pages are slow as a result. Here is an article describing 5 free macOS editors, all of which will do a better job: 5 Best Free HTML Editors for Web Developers on macOS

Hi twister!

Go to the Word menu and choose About Word. Be sure the version is 16.15

If you have any other version, install updates:

Install Mac OS X updates followed by Office updates.

 

Install Mac OS X updates first:

To get Mac OS updates, go to the App store on your dock, and then click the Updates button to reveal available updates.

 

Then Install Office Updates

To get the update:

1. Open any Office application

2. Go to the Help menu and choose Check for Updates

3. Let AutoUpdate check for and install updates

4. Restart your Mac

 

If you have any add-ins such as WebEx, Mendelay, EndNote, Zotero, TypeIt4me, etc it is essential that you install the latest updates for your add-ins.

If you already have version 16.15, try a very simple document from scratch and see if you can use File > Save As Web Page or Web Page Filtered. It ought to work. Be sure you're saving somewhere to your Documents folder.

I was able to create a new document and save as web page .htm.  So what appears to be the problem is that if a document is created an saved as web page using Windows version of Word and then try to edit it using MAC Word and then attempt to save as web page ...it does not work.  Any ideas??

Hi Twistercoach,

I test from my side and get the same result as yours. Create new document and save it as html format works well with Word 2016 for Mac. However, create a html format document in Word for Windows, transfer the file to Mac. I get error message when saving changes to it in Word 2016 for Mac. You may check if you copy contents from the Word for Windows created document, and then paste to a blank document created by Word 2016 for Mac, save the new document as htm format. Check if the recreated file works properly.

We understand it was not very convenient for users who are in the same situation (work with html file created by Windows version with Word 2016 for Mac). I suggest you click the smile button at the right top of the Word window. Directly submit the feedback to our related team. This is the best way to let the related team get your feedback.

Thanks for your understanding.

I just made a document in Word 2016 for Windows, used File > Save As and chose web page .htm .html

I opened the file in Word 2016 for Mac and had no issues.

Can you provide one of the bad html files made by Word for Windows by placing it on a shared drive such as DropBox or OneDrive? Your shared file should not contain private or confidential information.

2. Comments Disappear When Word Doc is Saved as PDF.

To resolve this issue, in Microsoft Word, you will need to click on File, Send and then choose the “Email as PDF attachment options”. You should be able to comment on balloons in the resulting PDF. Change tracking settings to “Final Showing Markup”.

3. Borders Become Corrupted or Disappear When Word Doc is Saved to PDF.

If you encounter this problem while trying to save Word to PDF, you will need to do the following:
Select the entire row that has been shaded, and then go to “Table”, followed by “Table Properties” and then select “Borders and Shading”, and then the Borders tab.
After that, choose the contour for the border setting and then select the same color as the one you applied for the shading.
Apply this setting to the cell and then repeat this for all rows or allow a macro to do this for you.

4. Word Doc Split Into Multiple Files When Saved as PDF.

You will need to use a US Letter instead of A3 or A4 in the printing options if you do not want to get this error. You are going to get a single PDF file regardless of the section or page breaks it may be having.

5. "Export failed due to unexpected error".

When you get this error when trying to save Word Doc as PDF, you will need to use Save As from the drop-down option before you click Save. Make sure that you choose the PDF option in the "Save As" window.

Thank you for your comment.  However, I have all my web stuff in Word so do not want to have to change just to use a MAC for .html.  All other file types work ok but not this specific type.

Hi twister!

Go to the Word menu and choose About Word. Be sure the version is 16.15

If you have any other version, install updates:

Install Mac OS X updates followed by Office updates.

 

Install Mac OS X updates first:

To get Mac OS updates, go to the App store on your dock, and then click the Updates button to reveal available updates.

 

Then Install Office Updates

To get the update:

1. Open any Office application

2. Go to the Help menu and choose Check for Updates

3. Let AutoUpdate check for and install updates

4. Restart your Mac

 

If you have any add-ins such as WebEx, Mendelay, EndNote, Zotero, TypeIt4me, etc it is essential that you install the latest updates for your add-ins.

If you already have version 16.15, try a very simple document from scratch and see if you can use File > Save As Web Page or Web Page Filtered. It ought to work. Be sure you're saving somewhere to your Documents folder.

I was able to create a new document and save as web page .htm.  So what appears to be the problem is that if a document is created an saved as web page using Windows version of Word and then try to edit it using MAC Word and then attempt to save as web page ...it does not work.  Any ideas??

Hi Twistercoach,

I test from my side and get the same result as yours. Create new document and save it as html format works well with Word 2016 for Mac. However, create a html format document in Word for Windows, transfer the file to Mac. I get error message when saving changes to it in Word 2016 for Mac. You may check if you copy contents from the Word for Windows created document, and then paste to a blank document created by Word 2016 for Mac, save the new document as htm format. Check if the recreated file works properly.

We understand it was not very convenient for users who are in the same situation (work with html file created by Windows version with Word 2016 for Mac). I suggest you click the smile button at the right top of the Word window. Directly submit the feedback to our related team. This is the best way to let the related team get your feedback.

Thanks for your understanding.

I just made a document in Word 2016 for Windows, used File > Save As and chose web page .htm .html

I opened the file in Word 2016 for Mac and had no issues.

Can you provide one of the bad html files made by Word for Windows by placing it on a shared drive such as DropBox or OneDrive? Your shared file should not contain private or confidential information.

Install and Use Excel Add-ins

Contextures

Install and use Excel add-ins to get extra features and commands in your workbooks

Find Your Add-ins Folder

Usually, Excel add-ins are installed in Excel's default folder for Add-ins. If you prefer to store add-ins in a different folder, go to the Use a Different Folder section.

To find your default Add-ins folder, you can use either of these methods:

Browse for the Addin Folder

To manually locate the default Excel AddIns folder, follow the steps below.

  1. Click the Developer tab on the Excel Ribbon. If it isn't visible, follow the steps here.
  2. Click the Excel Add-Ins command (icon is a cog shape)
  3. In the Add-Ins window, select any add-in in the list, and click the Browse button. That will open the Browse window, at the AddIns folder.
  4. Right-click on the path at the top of the Browse window, and click "Copy Address as Text"
  5. Click Cancel, to close the Browse window
  6. Click Cancel, to close the Add-Ins window.
  7. Open Windows Explorer, and paste the copied address into the address bar, then press Enter

How to Use the Excel Addin Folder Path Locator File

  1. Download a copy of my Excel Addin Folder Path Locator file.
  2. Unzip the file, and store it in a folder on your computer (not the Addins folder)
  3. Next, open the file, and enable macros
  4. Go to the AddinsFolder sheet
  5. Click the Show Addins Folder Location button.
  6. In cell B4, the file path will appear. For example, in Windows 10, it might be located here:
       C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\AddIns
  7. Click the Open Addins Folder button
  8. Windows Explorer will open, and will show the contents of the Addins Folder.

NOTE: Close Excel before making any changes to the installed Addins

Excel Addin Folder Path file

How to Install an Excel Add-In

Excel 2007 and Later

To install an add-in, please follow these steps:

  1. In Windows Explorer, open the Microsoft Excel Addins folder on your computer.
    NOTE: If you aren't sure of the location, you can use the Excel Addin Folder Path file to find it.
    If you are using a different folder, see the Use a Different Folder section below.
  2. Unzip the add-in file, if necessary, to extract the add-in file -- it will probably have an xlam extension
  3. Save the add-in file in your Microsoft Addins folder.
    NOTE: You can store the add-in in any folder, but it's easier to install if it's stored in the Addins folder
  4. To allow Excel to open the add-in file automatically, you might need to unblock it. Right click on the add-in file and click Properties
  5. file properties

  6. If the following warning appears, click the Unblock box, to add a check mark -- "This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer"
  7. unblock

  8. Click OK
  9. Open the Excel program

In Excel:

  1. On the Ribbon, click the Developer tab (if you don't see that tab, follow the instructions here to show it)
  2. Click the Excel Add-Ins command (icon is a cog shape).
  3. In the Add-in dialog box, add a check mark to add-in's name.
    Note: If you do not see the add-in in the list, click the Browse button. Navigate to the folder where you saved the xlam file, and select the add-in file
  4. Click OK, to close the window.
  5. A new tab for the add-in might appear on the Ribbon, or a new command might appear on one of the existing tabs -- check the add-in notes, for help in locating it.
  6. If you don't see a button on the Ribbon, you can add icons to the Quick Access Toolbar, to run the macros.

Use a Different Folder to Store Add-ins

Instead of storing your Excel add-in in the default Micrsoft Excel Addins folder, you can use an other folder on your computer.

To prevent problems, follow these steps to set that folder as a Trusted Location:

  1. In Excel, click the File Tab, and click Options
  2. In the list at the left, click Trust Centre
  3. Click the Trust Center Settings button
  4. In the list at the left, click Trusted Locations
  5. If your folder is not list there, click the Add New Location button
  6. Click the Browse button
  7. Find and select your folder, and click OK
  8. Click OK again, and your folder should appear in the Trusted Location list.
  9. Click OK, twice, to close the windows.

Add-in Custom Tab Not Showing

Due to Microsoft security updates, some Excel add-ins (mine and others) might not load correctly, and their custom tabs don't appear on the Excel Ribbon. Here are a few solutions you can try.

-- Unblock the Add-in File

-- Use a Trusted Location

-- Check the Ribbon

Unblock the Add-in File

This is the most common solution to the missing add-in tab. Follow the steps below, to unblock the file, and it should open correctly.

  1. Close Excel, if it is running
  2. Open Windows Explorer, and open the folder where you stored the add-in file, usually the Microsoft Addins folder.
    NOTE: If you aren't sure of the Addins folder location, you can use the Excel Addin Folder Path file to find it. Then, close Excel again.
  3. To allow Excel to open the add-in file automatically, you might need to unblock it. Right click on the add-in file and click Properties
  4. file properties

  5. If the following warning appears, click the Unblock box, to add a check mark -- "This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer"
  6. unblock

  7. Click OK
  8. Then, start Excel, and the custom tab for the add-in should appear on the Excel Ribbon

Use a Trusted Location

If your add-in is not stored in the defaault addins folder, the tabs could be missing because your folder is not a Trusted Location.

Follow the instructions above, that show how to use a different folder as a Trusted Location for your add-in files.

Check the Ribbon

In one case that I've heard of, there was a problem with the Excel Ribbon. Try these steps, if the other solutions don't fix the problem.

  • Right-click on an empty part of the Excel Ribbon, and click Customize the Ribbon
  • In the list at the right, you should only see one tab named Developer
  • If there is a second one, named Developer (Custom), uncheck that tab
  • Then, close the Customize window, and close and restart Excel.

Free Add-ins

I use a few free add-ins that make Excel even better, and asked other people what free add-ins they use, and would recommend.

I compiled a list, starting with my favourites. Maybe you'll see a few that you can download and install, and make working in Excel a bit easier.

Click here to see my list of recommended free add-ins.

Save a File as an Add-in

You can create your own add-ins, by storing macros in a file, then saving it as an add-in:

  1. Record or create one or more macros in the file
  2. On the Excel Ribbon, click the File tab, and click Save As
  3. Click the Browse button, to open the Save As window (stay in the selected folder)
  4. At the bottom, type a File Name
  5. In the Save As Type drop down, select Excel Add-In (*.xlam)
  6. The AddIns folder should be automatically selected
  7. Click Save, then close Excel
  8. To use your add-in file, follow the steps above, to install it

Remove an Add-in

To remove an Excel add-in that you stored in the Addins folder, follow these steps.

A) Open the Add-ins Window

Use one of these methods to open the Add-ins window:

  • If the Developer tab is showing on your Excel Ribbon, click that, then click the Excel Add-ins command.

      Excel Add-ins command

  • OR, click the File tab, then click Options, and click the Add-Ins category.
  • At the bottom of the window, in the Manage drop down list, choose Excel Add-ins, and then click Go

      Manage drop down list

B) Inactivate the Add-in

Next follow these steps to inactivate the add-in:

  • In the Add-Ins available list, click on the add-in that you want to inactivate -- its description will appear below the list. Read that, to make sure that it's the add-in that you want to remove
  • Then, remove the check mark beside the Add-in's name

      Add-ins Available list

  • Next, click OK, to close the Add-ins window.

C) Remove the Add-in

Next follow these steps to remove the add-in file:

  • Close Excel
  • Go to the Addins folder (follow the steps to find it), or the folder where you stored the Excel add-in that you want to remove
  • Delete the add-in file, or move it to a different folder, so it won't open automatically, when Excel starts.
  • Restart Excel, and the add-in will no longer appear.

Using moodle_quiz_v11 in Word 2010 - error

This discussion has been locked so you can no longer reply to it.

Hello everybody,

I've been a happy user of this great template for a few years. Last week I upgraded to MS Word 2010 and today I got an error message when first trying to export a quiz.

Run-Time error 5151
Aplication can't read the document. Probably it is damaged.

But doing the the CleanUp function shows no error.

Anybody has the same problem? Thanks for any answer.

Just a short "update". I downloaded and tried an improved version of the template, but I get the same error. I also include a screen capture of the debug info. Could enybody help please?

Am I really the only one who has this strange problem with MS Word?

Hi Vlad

i thougt, that i am the only one. tried to fix it in many ways an did not find any solution, but by coincidence, there was suddenly a file, witch works, i have no idea why...

if you open the word template, it doesnt work, if you open the document "vorlage" and do: "save as...", it works.

Unfortunately, the template is translated in German. but i made some more features:

  • generalfeedback, questiontitle, numerical question (with tolerance!), fix or nonfix answers in mc and matching questions, path/categorie in header (and imagename like header)

so check it out!

Nice job.  Have you found out if there is an engluish version....?

Yeah, I can figure out the styles, but not the error messages.

Hi Lael,

Thanks for making your modified version available! 

Just wanted to let you know that it appears that your link has broken and currently gives the error: "Sorry, the requested file could not be found"

Regards,

-Matt.

Hi Lael, it is really nice to see you giving updates regularly.

I used word2010 to save xml for moodle quiz from example.docx but it gave me run time error 13 (type mismatch) and debug stops at  Set objStream = CreateObject("ADODB.Stream").

Am I doing anything wrong?

Thanks in advance

Hi Shiva,

I believe example is the one that came with the quiz when I first got it. It won't work. You need to use the one called CopyPasteEditThisOnefor2010

Do what it says ata Copy, Paste it and Edit it and it should (fingers crossed) work fine. Let me know how you go.

Yes, it is working ata tele!!

You are so nice!

Great to hear!

Actually the example *should* work as well. Just realised it is one I made, not one I inherited. Maybe just make sure you don't move it out of the folder? I just tried it and it seems to work ok for me?

Thanks & Thanks

There must be some problem with my Word Installations (i had so many add ins -all for moodle questions- installed) I clean installed. Now even example is working ma

Hi,

Im also getting the same run time error with word 2010. Im a newbie to this so may have stuffed up ata. I loaded the copypasteedit template into word then edited it and saved it with a new name. Did i do it right? Wasnt sure what copy paste edit meant exactly since there wasnt anything in the doc to copy.

Colin

Hi Colin, 

Sorry, I didn't see this earlier. copy and paste the document and then rename it and edit it. Let me know how you go.

Lael

I have tried both "example" and "CopyPasteEditThisoneforWord2010" files, but still not work! it shows error as attached print screen.

Hi, I found it can also import picture in Question, but it cannot import picture in Answers. Can it be possible to import pictures in Answers too?

Thank you.

I would like to do this as well as a couple of other fixes. I don't have the time to do them myself. If someone is able to contribute funding I know of someone who can work on it.

Hi, how did you import pictures into the Question? My images fail to import once I publish the Word XML file. Once I import the file into Moodle, the images clearly seen in Word 2010 do not appear. My source image files are in jpeg or gif and they fail to appear. I tried to use the paste function after I entered the question and still no luckfa'anoanoa. Thanks

Hi All,

i am using moodle quiz_v21, whenever i am trying to put equation in my multiple choice questions its not coming in xml.

For example when i type 4/3 it is fine but if i use the equation editor to type like 4/3 then it does not come.

It only shows blank

i dont know what to do... could you please help

How are you doing this, are you creating the equation in word and then pasting it into the Moodle question field. What do you see if you click the HTML button on the Moodle editor button?

i am just inserting the equation in word as shown in the above screen shot.

Thanks,

can anybody help me..please!

I know its a few years old.. but this is great.. 

Spent the last two days playing with other ways but for Bulk loading of Essay type questions but this is the way to go.. 

thank you, thank you.. 

Many hours saved.. !!!!

Hi, everyone!

I've got a little problem with moodle_quiz_v21. I have a lot of questions that have several lines of text for question name, title and answers. This module only understands questions that have only one line of text. Can anyone help me to modify this module to export questions with several lines of text. 

Another problem is that this module creates simple text, but not html. Sometimes it is very important to have question text with some html tags, like <strong>, <i> etc....

Excuse my bad English ata

This module only understands questions that have only one line of text.

Anatoliy, it's not true ata

Please read the comment in file example.docx: "Question Names (titles) are optional. You NEED them for any question that is longer than two lines, or Moodle will not import the question."

Saving multiple Word documents as HTML through Office API

I have a large amount of Word documents that I need to parse. As they all were created from the same template, I think that the best approach would be to save them as HTML files and parse the HTML itself.

While it's quite easy to save a single Word document as HTML, I haven't found a way to do a bulk procedure from inside Word. Thus, I'm trying to find a way to leverage the Microsoft Office/Word API to accomplish this.

How can I use the Word API to save many Word documents as HTML?

Thanks in advance.

UPDATE: A few more details...

Some of the documents are of extension , while others are . I hope that this isn't a problem, but if it is, I'll just have to convert them all to , hopefully with the API or with DocX.

Speaking of DocX, I saw on the author's blog that it's possible to save a file as HTML with the following code:

Is this the best way to do it?

question

Hello,

I want to save one .DOCX document as HTML using "SaveAs" method. The document contains a lot of content controls (around 4001).

If I remove them all or some of them the document is saved to html properly. But if I try to save it as HTML with all controls then the code breaks.

I have used the next code (using Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word):
var document = this.Application.ActiveDocument;


And also the next code that is the same but using Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word :

var vstoDocument = Globals.Factory.GetVstoObject(this.Application.ActiveDocument);


In both cases, the red code throw an error:

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException

HResult=0x800A14CA

Mensaje = Memoria o espacio en disco insuficiente. Word no puede mostrar la fuente solicitada.

Origen = <No se puede evaluar el origen de la excepción>

Seguimiento de la pila:

<No se puede evaluar el seguimiento de la pila de excepciones>

Details:

I am using:

Microsoft® Word for Microsoft 365 MSO (version 2201 compilation16.0.14827.20158) of 64 bits.

Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2019 (Versión 16.8.5).

.NET Framework 4.8.

I have tryed to fix the problem:

Removing all files into the temp folder due the message of enough space of disk memory but I have 250 GB of free space.

Installing Hebrew regarding to fonts.

Changing all fonts of the document to arial font.

But any solution of the previous not resolve the problem.

The strange think is that the html seems to be created into the temp folder but as I see the error message I am not sure if the document has been saved properly because it is too long.

Someone could help me or explain why the quantities of Content control affect to the "saveAs" method?
