I am working on automation where I need to replace multiple strings in Word document. At the moment I am using Word Application Scope + Replace. This works fine but sometimes I need to replace more than 50 strings so it takes almost a minute per document. Also, I will need to work with > 300 000 documents …
I was trying:
- to use VBA (using excel) - not supported
- to convert word into an HTML format and replace string here - this will crush the formatting
The thing is I need to preserve the format of the Word Document. So I cannot use string replace and insert replaced text back.
And at the top of that, I am more than curious if anyone was working with PowerPoint automation? Is there any shortcut instead of “click automation”?
Thank you very much, guys.
