Replacement of a special character for word files and convert docx to doc


I'm developing a tool for our team. Withouth as much detail that I have to watch a lot of special characters in a Word file (docx, but I should also convert doc, but later on this topic) than these special characters with others to change.

For example, word replaces... with a character, but other software we can't handle this character. So now I have an excel spreadsheet that has special characters in one column and those I want to replace them by in the next. One who is now a constant loop is the replacement of the... with... (with a space between the two points)

The small tool worked very well on a test document where I just dropped in all the characters I want replaced. I tried with the doc type should be used on and it starts an infinite loop of spamming characters. I will attach a picture of the sniplet of code and an image of what it does in the document now.

Can someone help me with this? I tried increment the range after that I found something but it does not change the problem. I can't join the VI unfortunately.

I also convert the docx files doc files (I think that the 2007 version?) If anyone can help with this? So far, I have tried to do a macro in word and use an activex magic to copy the macro, but I hit hard walls everywhere...

Thanks in advance!

(And sorry, I'm new to the Forum)

  • I am the owner of everything on my pc I do not have the special permissions for individual files and I am denied access

    permissions of origin title: special

    I am the owner of everything on my pc I don't have special permissions for some individual files that I find quite strange. It also means that I can't delete some files. I tried to access the files when I started from a different hard drive, but still can not remove. While I followed all procedures to address this issue, I still do not end with special permissions. Is it possible to modify or delete the files from the MS DOS window or is there something that I am missing. I also found it seems to be an 'unknown user' in the permissions area, and when I try to delete or change this 'unknown user' and a second show. 1 then said who is denied access, but the other has access. No matter what I have I can not get rid of it! And file sharing is disabled disabled! Help, please

    In Vista, many files can not even to administrators. Some are to protect the user from making mistakes (like many in the Windows directory and in your personal profile).  Some are points of junction (VS.85) .aspx which are there for backwards compatibility and should not be modified in any way (and certainly not deleted) or you may not be able to use your programs or may even damage the system to the point where it will need to be reinstalled).  You shouldn't need special permits to delete a file if you have all the rights, but special permissions can block access and that's sometimes how it blocks even administrators.  Keep in mind that XP administrators had access more than them in Vista - blocked is not necessarily a problem, but intentionally by developers of Vista.

    However, if you're talking about files that you devriez have permission, then the following information about the ownership and permissions can help you.

    To view your permissions, right-click on the file/folder, click Properties, and check the Security tab.  Check the permissions you have by clicking on your user name (or group of users).  Here are the types of permissions, you may have:  You must be an administrator or owner to change the permissions (and sometimes, being an administrator or even an owner is not sufficient - there are ways to block access (even if a smart administrator knows these ways and can move them - but usually should not because they did not have access, usually for a very good reason).)  Here's how to change the permissions of folder under Vista: To add take and the issuance of right of permissions and ownership in the right click menu (which will make it faster to get once it is configured), see the following article:

    To solve this problem with folders, folders takeownership or the reader (as an administrator) and give you all the rights.  Right-click on the folder/drive, click Properties, click the Security tab and click on advanced and then click the owner tab.  Click on edit, and then click the name of the person you want to give to the property (you may need to add if it is not there--or maybe yourself). If you want that it applies to subfolders and files in this folder/drive, then check the box to replace the owner of subcontainers and objects, and click OK.  Back and now there is a new owner for files and folders/player who can change the required permissions.  Here is more information on the ownership of a file or a folder: To add take ownership in the menu of the right click (which will make it faster to get once it is configured), see the following article:

    I hope this helps.  If this isn't the case, after return and we'll get the exact path of these files to make sure that you really can visit his profile and try adding special permissions.  I suspect that the problem is that everyone is denied access and blocking everyone - but we'll check (if necessary).

    Good luck!

    A scanned document is an image; You can't find a picture.

    If the image contains text, recognition of characters (OCR) will convert the 'text' in the image in real text (searchable, editable).

    OCR can be performed automatically when converting a PDF to Word, using the ExportPDF service.

Click the folder for the ICO to reveal the different icons in the package. Click on one of the icons to see what it looks like.

    To make a shortcut to a folder and change the look of the shortcut icon:

    1 - Open my computer and locate the folder you want.

    2-click right on the folder and then click create a shortcut. If you are prompted to place the shortcut on the desktop, click Yes.

  • MEDIA PLAYER for .mp3 files and download and play .asx files old version of the weekly radio program

    I quite often download or listen to a radio show which is broadcast live every Sunday morning and the program is available to download (mp3 file) or listen to (asx file) until the new program is broadcast a week later.  I have rarely listen to the program when it is broadcast live, but sometimes listen live on other programs of that station with no problems.

    Last week I downloaded last week program and everything was ok.  Today, I downloaded program yesterday (February 24) and he started to play with an introduction to the program of the weeks previous (February 17).  I asked a friend to try on his computer and he managed to download the latest program with no problems.  So I've established that the radio station is not at fault, but there must be a problem with my Media Player.

    So far, I updated Windows Media Center the default player for each type of file (with file association) and it did not work, I followed by assigning Windows Media Player and that had no effect either.  I deleted the files downloaded after every attempt to avoid the player pick up the old file.

    Is the association of file replace Autorun settings?

  • Try to create, what I thought was a simple action to open PDF files and convert them to JPEG... but...


    I am trying to create a simple action/drop that will open a lot of PDF files and make some resolution on opening and then save as a JPEG in a particular file.

    The problem is, when I create the action, the first step, when I open the PDF file, regardless of the name was in the name box, is it? Each new PDF opens with this same name and substitutes the following.

    Does anyone know how to get around this problem?

    Is there a way in Photoshop to the current name of the file open and do not use one that was the original file that the action was created from saying?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Hi, there are some hacks that you can do to make it more difficult to print a PDF file, but there is no way to completely prevent the transmission or printing.

    If you want security, you can share a PDF file with password to ensure that only the right people view your document. Acrobat XI has security features that allow you to do this.
