I need a program to convert a whole lot of .doc and .rtf files I need to convert into plain text (.txt) files. Is there a program which will do entire folders of these automatcally?

Somebody,

You might find something on this site (http://www.filetransit.com/category.php?id=212) to do the trick

hey!

simple create a new txt document. type in it

rename *.doc *.txt

OR

rename *.rtf *.txt

save it as a *.bat file and run that in the folder the files are in. Easy as pie! ;-)

Just changing the file extention won't change the file format. I want to change existing .doc and .rtf files into .txt files - of course in the process losing all the formatting etc. (which is what I want)

Thanks. The program seems to work - just downloading it now.
