Thread: Macro to rename in "save-as" file.

  1. #1

    Macro to rename in "save-as" file.

    I am new to this forum and have no experience directly in VBA, but I have made some basic Word 2010 macros.

    I have a list of about 300 files that I need to do a save-as in .txt format and save with .txt instead of the current .doc extension. My limited record macro is retaining the name of the file I record the macro on for all of the files and wanting to overwrite which is not what I want it to do.

    Any help to rename would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Ed,

    Sub DocumentsToText() 
        Application.ScreenUpdating = False 
        Dim strFolder As String, strFile As String, wdDoc As Document 
        strFolder = GetFolder 
        If strFolder = "" Then Exit Sub 
        strFile = Dir(strFolder & "\*.doc", vbNormal) 
        While strFile <> "" 
            Set wdDoc = Documents.Open(FileName:=strFolder & "\" & strFile, AddToRecentFiles:=False, Visible:=False) 
            With wdDoc 
                .SaveAs strFolder & "\" & Split(.Name, ".")(0), FileFormat:=wdFormatText, AddToRecentFiles:=False 
                .Close SaveChanges:=False 
            End With 
            strFile = Dir() 
        Set wdDoc = Nothing 
        Application.ScreenUpdating = True 
    End Sub 
    Function GetFolder() As String 
        Dim oFolder As Object 
        GetFolder = "" 
        Set oFolder = CreateObject("Shell.Application").BrowseForFolder(0, "Choose a folder", 0) 
        If (Not oFolder Is Nothing) Then GetFolder = oFolder.Items.Item.Path 
        Set oFolder = Nothing 
    End Function
