Convert a custom file type RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible for me to create an addin for word (2003-2010) in VB6 that will allow me to handle a custom file type and convert it when opened in Word. I've seen mention of exporting custom file formats but not importing.

  • Hi Shasur

    Andy wants to use VB6. VSTO is not part of VB6 - it's part of VB.NEt. And anyway, VSTO can't be used to create file converters. There are a number of articles available on how to create file converters for the Office 2007 file formats. But all those articles use a .NET language, not VB6.
