How to navigate and send AHK variables in word.doc to needed place

13 Aug 2020, 17:15

Hi,

I have invoice in word.doc and I need to add or replace some text in that word.doc (like date, amount, name and so on) and convert it to pdf. and save on desktop. How to send info which is stored in AHK variable to word. doc to needed destination (area in the document)?
Any suggestions?

I hope my question is clear and not complicated :)

Bc you've to convert it anyway, why not using HTML instead of a doc for the template? That way you could manipulate your template easily and covert it afterwards.
Another option would be doing something like this: http://www.addbalance.com/word/datefields1.htm

Thanks BoBo for reply. I did not hear that it is possible to do with HTML and how to navigate in such document.
I have checked website you shared and I found a little bit complicated to find information, but I really appreciate for you reply! I will try find more info about HTML and Word what you suggesting.
In my case i thought it is possible somehow to reuse template of word.doc. Just needed insert there information. Seems I need to build the same but in another way.
