I have a bunch of .txt files, sorted in different folders. I need to convert all of .txt files to .doc files.
I have Googled the issue and found that I could just change the extension to .doc. But this doesn't seem to work, as Word still wants to convert the file when i open it. And no matter which option i use to convert (Text only, Unicode text, etc.) the file doesn't convert special characters, such as –, æ, ø, å (which is common in my language :) ).
I have tried to choose Unicode text and choose Encoding such as "Western (Mac OS Roman)" or "Western (Windows Latin 1)" but none of these convert the special characters properly.
So - I found out, that at simple copy / paste from .txt to .doc works.. but with 100's af files, this would be a tedious manual work.
My question therefore: Is there any way this can be automated?
