Can't get Word import to work in Luis webstationone editor..


The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

Can't get Word import to work in Luis webstationone editor.. Can't Post

Hi, gang..

I can't seem to get Luis's version of the HTMLArea Editor working using IE 6.0.

I've added http://webstationone.com to the "Trusted" Zone in IE Security Settings, and have set the 5 ActiveX permissions all to "Enable". I've rebooted IE, and try to use the Word Import button. The file browser comes up, I select a .doc, and get:

Error 47
'Documents' is null or not an object
Please press CTRL+h or F1 and refer to the Enabling ActiveX Controls section at the Appendix of the Help file. (Which I did..everything looks ducky).

The Word doc was created with Word 2000 and saved as a normal, vanilla ".doc" file. (Not as a Web page..does this matter?)

Can anyone help? I'd really like to get this working.

Thanks!!

Hi jstolzen:

Is this happening from my demo site or from your own installation?

If it's from my demo site, make sure the domain in the trusted sites matches exactly as you are typing it in: (http://webstationone.com, or http://www.webstationone.com) or add both just in case.

If it's from your own installation, then you need to add your domain.

Greetings

Thanks, Luis.

Turned out to be a dumb error on my part (using HTMLArea on your site, BTW).

I didn't realize it at first, but this obviously only works with Word installed on the client machine. (I didn't know if you had some server-side library you were invoking, but now found you're invoking a local copy of Word to do the conversion. Doh! I tried this on a machine with a local copy of Word installed and it works just fine, as expected)

BTW..is there any way to convert a Word doc having embedded graphics and preserve them? I noticed that these get taken out on conversion.

Thanks again!

Jim

Hi jstolzen:

You can, but there area a lot of problems in between:

First.- The directory where Word stores images varies depending of Win adn Office's versions and depends also on the user, when working in a network ambiance.

Second.- Sometimes, image's attributes (width and height, mainly), are declared in styles, which are above the body tag and therefore are cleared before you can parse them, then most of times, images are inserted in its native size.

Third.- If you manage to solve all that, there is still a third problem: Images are stored locally and they need to be uploaded anyway.
