Ruth Lundquist asked:

| Does anyone know of a macro, tool, program, utility, potion, magic spell,
| and/or sacrificial offering that will convert a Word document to
| *readable*
| text?
|
| Readable is the key word here, folks. It's possible to simply "Save
| As=text", but when you try that on a document that has columns,
| tables, or
| other formatting, you are, in a word, screwed. Another problem we've
| encountered with "Save As=text" is the unique and mystifying ability of
| Word to take a 20 page document and turn it into one long line of
| text--no
| paragraph breaks, no page breaks--nothing!

Did you try Save As "Text with layout"?
