I'm trying to figure out whether Python is suitable for making a tool for moving text from one Word document to a new one automatically. I know Python can do all of the necessary functions, but it has to be able to read and write to .doc & .docx
Does anyone know if that's at all feasible? I've tried all the usual google avenues plus asking some friends, but they have been of little help. Attached is a rough flowchart outline.

I don't use Windows or MS products, but I would guess that you want to use win32com. I believe it gives you an API for interacting with MS Office. I could be wrong, but this might point you in the right direction.
Due to the reasons discussed here
we will be moving to python-forum.io
on October 1, 2016.
This forum will be locked down and no one will be able to post/edit/create threads, etc. here from thereafter. Please create an account at the new site to continue discussion.
