I receive an update every 2 weeks on jobs openings that have to be posted to a website into a table.

The update is a Microsoft Word document.

I normally save it as html and then paste it into the table.

This messes up the formatting and I have to fix it manually.

Is there a better way ??????



I am attaching the Word Document --- I named it openpos2.txt because I was not able to attach a .doc
file. Open it with Word or rename to .doc.

Here is the table:



<TABLE ID="Table1" BORDER=0 CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 WIDTH="100%">

<TR>
<TD WIDTH=609>
<UL>
<FONT FACE="Arial,Helvetica,Geneva,Sans-serif,sans-serif"></FONT>
</UL>

</TD>
</TR>
</TABLE>





Thanks for your help.

Ummm that text file's not much use I'm afraid - take a look.

Converting a word doc to pretty well anything results in it screwing up.

IIRC, Homesite and Dreamweaver both have codesweepers that will clean up Word html, but they do a far from perfect job.

Your best bet is to try and get the job data in some other format - XML would be nice :)

Thanks for the advice.

I finally decided to get some software to do it:

Click to Convert --- does a GREAT job.

Seems to handle any formatting issues without a problem.
