    Is there windows function that merge all word documents into one?

    Hello I am just wondering if there a windows function that would merge all .documents in one because I am lazy to do all the parsing etc.

    I am having exams these days so its kinda hard for me to find time to code all the parsing.

    Thanks.

    Do you honestly expect that to exist?
    If you haven't figured it out yet, the answer is no...

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    It would involve a lot of work and a lot of COM.

    What are you trying to do exactly? Might be easier to do with a scripting language or C#

    I am just trying to merge all word documents into one .doc file I could easily reverse the header and figure out how its setuped and then code a parser for it,but currently I have exams to do alot of code so I was just wondering if there is a library that would do the parsing for me.

    for example I could just read it in binary and after that figure out how to parse it,then fwrite or WriteFile on a single document.

    @Elysia

    Yes,some stuff like that does exist there always irc parsing libraries and other type of libraries for parsing.
    I do know how to parse it but it would take alot of work and I am just making this program for my use because I have
    many documents in a directory and I want to parse it into one,but it would take some time to code it,and since I have
    exams now for highschool I don't have enough time .

    It would probably be easier to set up a master document that includes the other documents...
