Project Description

I need a Python program, which opens a Microsoft Word document, extracts data from it, modifies the document and saves the result. The command-line interface is enough for me.


1) The user says how to open a document

a) "current": program should connect to Word and use the currently open document

b) "file": the user gives the path to a Word file

2) Extracting data

The program should construct the table of contents from heading-styles. The table should also contain the paragraphs, which contain the text "MEETO".

3) Changing the document

The users selects a section or meeto-paragraph in the table of contents. The program deletes the selection

a) permanently, or

b) with "track changes" option.

4) Saving the document

If the original document name is "[url removed, login to view]", then the new document should be named "[url removed, login to view]".
