> Hi Josep,
> The script itself is not particular to any version of Word (I tested it in Word2007 FWIW). The important question is whether the *version of Word you are using* is compatible with all your different docs. But fortunately, if you have an up-to-date version of Word, it will happily open docs created by that version or by any earlier versions.
> HOWEVER, if you have both "doc" and "docx" formats, you will need to modify the string in the macro that specifies what files you want (e.g. to "*.doc*") to catch both forms of the file extension.

> Adam: if you can send me the script, I'd really appreciate it. We've checked the documentation for PyUNO and it is not all that clear so your scripts might give us a good headstart.
> Andrew: your macro works with all versions of Word? We have documents created with different Word versions.
