Technical Tip

Convert documents to different formats

One of the important features of Aspose.Words for .NET is extensive support of DOC, RTF, WordprocessingML and HTML import & export. You can convert documents between any of these formats using just two lines of code. DOC, RTF and WordprocessingML are Microsoft Word document formats. Aspose.Words supports these formats to a very high degree and therefore conversions between these formats in any direction are very precise. No document content or formatting is lost during such conversions. Aspose.Words can be used in a server or client application, single threaded or multi-threaded.


// Convert from RTF to DOC
Aspose.Words.Document doc = new Document(“C:\\MyFolder\\MyFile.rtf”);

// Convert from HTML to RTF
Aspose.Words.Document doc = new Document(“C:\\MyFolder\\MyFile.html”);

// Convert from DOC to WordML
Aspose.Words.Document doc = new Document(“C:\\MyFolder\\MyFile.doc”);

// And so on.


’ Convert from RTF to DOC
Dim doc As Aspose.Words.Document = New Document(“C:\\MyFolder\\MyFile.rtf”)

’ Convert from HTML to RTF
Dim doc As Aspose.Words.Document = New Document(“C:\\MyFolder\\MyFile.html”)

’ Convert from DOC to WordML
Dim doc As Aspose.Words.Document = New Document(“C:\\MyFolder\\MyFile.doc”)

’ And so on.
