I'm having problems with converting doc files to html, pdf to html, pdf to doc etc etc and I'm looking for some free tools to do so.

Any suggestions would be welcome as i'm tearing my hair out here!

Thanks!

have a look on google and search for doc to html.

do you not think i have tried that?!?!?

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of programs they have used!

It was only a suggestion, you didnt mention anything about searches. Ill have a look for you.

Thanks - its something that has been annoying me for ages trying to convert documents without losing much in the presentation.

When you talk about .doc files, I presume you're talking about Word .doc files: If that's the case, Word can Save As a web page.

but when it saves as a web page it creates horrible html code and doesnt keep the same presentation.

Plus i dont have access to word - just Open Office.

Told you money was a factor! lol

OK, try this click here

But with all automatic conversions you're going to get some html code which you could have done better yourself (which I presume is what you're talking about when you mention horrible html code).

To convert doc to html why not open the file in word and then click "save as" and in the save as window click in the "save astype" box and select "HTML Document"

I don't have word, i use Open Office instead as i stated above.

I'm going to download the evaluation version of leadtools to see if i get any joy.

Any other programs worth looking at (freeware if possible)
