    I need to read a file of type ".doc" and use the contents to do some processing. I successfully read ".txt" and ".html" files using the FileSystemObject - OpenAsTextStream method but am having no luck reading ".doc" files. Can I use the openastextstream method or am I trying to do something that can't be done in asp? Thanks for any help!!

    What do you mean by 'no luck'? Are you really trying to read a Word document as a TextStream? You will probably not get what you expect, since those files contain formatting information, document information, etc. (i.e. they are not plain text)
