algel has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi, all. I want to read all existing tables from Microsoft Word doc. If exists any way to do that, without "Save As..." to text format? Thanks.

    As often, it's good to check The CPAN Search Site. See Win32::OLE
    _($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q/)Oo.  G\        /
                                  /\_/(q    /
    ----------------------------  \__(m.====.(_("always off the crowd"))."
    ");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}
      I work in UNIX with Word docs
        If you have some windows server sitting around, you could give a try to Docclient.

        If not, I don't know of any perl module that does that. (hmm... somebody working on a perl port of Jakarta POI out there?).

        But then, as UNIX is, I would grab mswordview and run the output through HTML::Parser or such.

        _($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q/)Oo.  G\        /
                                      /\_/(q    /
        ----------------------------  \__(m.====.(_("always off the crowd"))."
        ");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}
