Overview

This workflow is able to convert Word files (*.docx, *.doc, *.rtf, *.txt, etc) to PDF. It can convert either one file at a time or all files in a specified folder.

  1. in_WordDocument (String) - the Word document which should be converted to PDF.

Features

Features

There are a lot of cases when we need to convert files from Word supported file types (docx, doc, txt, rtf) to PDF. By importing this workflow a developer's job is simplified. He can invoke this workflow by passing a file or a folder of files to the workflow and it will handle everything from that moment. 

The workflow returns 3 arrays as output arguments containing the files which could be converted, the files which couldn't be converted and the resulted PDFs for later use.
