Question Viewing *.dot file content

I have several .dot files (EG: Special.dot ) that contain mostly vba macroes etc. I no longer have MS word on my systems but would like to examine the dot contents for future reference.



Anyone know of a 'viewer' that I can get for free?

TIA
Martyn

AFAIK, the only "viewer" is the VBA Editor, and that means Word.

Thats kind of what I thought too. Just wondered if there was a similar utility to make it a text file.

Thumbs up

Just loaded up OpenOffice and the writer allows for loading templates and editing them. It provided enough for me to look at and print all the macroes.
