Is it possible to convert a Word document to the PmWiki syntax?


This macro (Word2PmWiki_0.9.zip) will convert Word document to PmWiki syntax. It was adapted from Word2MediaWikiPlus. Thanks to Gunter Schmidt.


For now I have adapted everything needed to convert a simple word document. The macro will convert:

  • Headings
  • Text format (bold, italic, colors (foreground and background), font size, strikethrough, subscript, superscript, underline)
  • Lists
  • Hyperlinks (external & internal)

The code to convert tables is there but I haven't adapt it yet. I have not tested the option buttons thoroughly. You might also encounter a problem with Tables of content...
