Hello

I have a requirement to convert a word document with several hundreds of tables to Framemaker.

Q1 - Which is the easiest way to do it?

I have imported the word document and manually doing the formatting. I have defined some styles that I am able to use. But its still a manual process.. Also I realise that while I am able to save the font and margin information of a table in the style, I am unable to save the column width. So, even after assigning the style, I have to manually adjust the column length.

 

I see that there is a possibility of writing a script.

Q2 - Is this achievable in a script?

 

Q3 - Is there an upper limit on the number of pages in a pdf file or the size? Some pdfs might even be 4000+ pages.. with a size of 30MB or even more..

 

Thanks

Meera

My TableCleaner script was designed to help with formatting Word tables in FrameMaker. See frameexpert dot com.

Hi

you did not write the version of Frame, but noted that you are formatting the styles manually.

Frame 2017 and 2019 have very good automation of Word import.

This might not solve the table problems, but definitely will help with formatting
