Subject Re: MS Publisher?
Date Fri, 08 Aug 2008 05:54:08 GMT
I have never used Publisher so forgive me please if this is a stupid question but is it possible,
when using Publisher, to save a file in a different format? If so, is it possible to use VBA
for example to create a macro in Publisher as you can in Excel or Word?

If the answer to both of these questions is yes, would it be possible to create a macro that
opened a file for you and then saved it in a different format? If this is possible then it
may also be possible to, for example, force the macro to loop through all of the files in
a directory.

Finally, have you searched for ActiveX controls? There are certainly controls that support
the manipulation of PDF files and there may be ones that allow you to manipulate Publisher

Does anyone know of an API to get at the metadata and content of MS Publisher
files (.pub)?  Or as an alternative, is there a way to programmatically convert
them to PDF, Word, or HTML?  I'm aware of things like PrimoPDF but they
don't seem to offer an API or an exe I could use.

Are any of the POI contributors currently working on .pub support?

Thanks for any info.
