    File Format Assistance

    Hi,

    I realise this isn't directly a question about C++ but it is related to a program I am writing at the moment, the program basically automatically creates some Microsoft word merge field data and then copies across to a pre-determined folder a copy of a word document to attach that data to.

    That is all completed, the thing I want to do now is open up the word document in binary format and automatically change the Merge data path, so i need information on the Microsoft Word 2000 Binary File Format.

    I have requested this information from Microsoft only to be told That, I quote "WE do not supply this information for business or personal use".

    I was hoping that someone would be able to point me in the right direction seeing as THEY won't

    thanks alot.

    You could try www.wotsit.org they have lots of file formats on hand, although if MS wont give you the detials I would imagine they will be hard to find
    Couldn't think of anything interesting, cool or funny - sorry.

    Thanks mate,

    I've already tried there, I have done a lot of searching on normal search engines and found a few sites but they only seem to have limited information on the word 97 format, even if I could fond comprehensive documentation on the word 97 format that would be good enough as word 2000 is backwards compatible.

    I was mainly hoping someone new of some wink wink nudge nudge ftp site somewhere????????

    Thanks again.
