that what i also read on google but my problem is what external program i will use to read a.doc.?even a simple display on the browser i could not find any.when you open it using php what you will see is boxes.i dont want to convert it on txt file because it will not follow the logic of what i want to achieve.:(
I did a quickly search and what I could see from the first results was that you probably have to use an external program and execute it over command line or something similar.
There seems not to be any php program that reads a .doc file using native php code unfornatuly =/
That's why I find PHP some what hard, and limited. :P ... in certain areas of course
