    Trouble updating site with info from Microsft Word

    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.
