Description from the Publisher

WordPipe can change hyperlinks and UNC paths when servers get renamed; update contact details such as names, addresses and phone numbers; translate documents with find/replace lists; update Microsoft SharePoint documents or Microsoft Namespace Server mappings.

Drag and drop files from Windows Explorer to WordPipe, or right-click the files or folders to process in Windows Explorer and choose WordPipe. You can add one or more search/replace pairs.

WordPipe can change thousands or millions of documents, and can make multiple changes simultaneously to save time. It automatically handles read-only files, passwords and other protection, and it can be automated to run overnight or over a weekend.

WordPipe includes restart recovery in case Microsoft Word crashes. WordPipe offers many more search and replace options than Microsoft Word; such as hyperlinks, bookmark names, text boxes, shapes, drop down fields, document properties (such as Title, Subject, Author, Company etc) and more.

You can use it for...

  • Standardizing corporate name changes such as your organization's phone number, address, web site or CEO
  • Performing server consolidations where document links need updating
  • Migration of documents when a server is renamed or replaced and all Word document links need updating
  • Updating documents to use Microsoft Namespace Server mappings
  • Standardize Policy Headers
  • Technical editing - Marking words and phrases based on fixed specifications
  • Changing part numbers or SKUs across multiple files
  • Removing digitized signatures from documents prior to converting them to PDF and placing them on the web

  • Detecting which Microsoft Word documents are password-protected (specify a blank password - these appear on the errors tab)
  • Correcting OCR (scanned) documents
  • Detecting 'TOP SECRET' documents that have been saved in the wrong folder (by security identifiers located in headers)

  • Search Only mode - very handy for detecting where replaces would occur

  • Works with Windows SharePoint Services document libraries, Office 365 / Network Storage
  • Files can be specified by folder (optionally including sub folders), by importing from a list file, or by pasting in a list of filenames
  • Control the document types used - so you can process .doc, .rtf, .html, .htm, .dot, .txt, .asc, .ans, .wri, .mcw, .wpd, .wps or any custom document type
  • Can be automated or scheduled via the command line, and settings are saved in an easy-to-edit or generate XML format

Users reviews & testimonials

It's a remarkably powerful utility which-if you need it-can't be beat. It's an industrial strength search & replace utility for Microsoft Word. Without opening a single Word file, you can quickly change thousands of documents with the push of a button. Think Batch Operation-On-Steroids.

Say you change your phone number and need to correct your letterhead in hundreds of documents. Just launch WordPipe and you're home free.

Now that's cool!

I actually went on line 10 minutes after trying the demo and bought the full version. This thing is great!

I figured in the first job that I used it on I did the job for 50% of the cost of the soft dollars it would have taken to do it manually.

494 files changed in about 20 minutes........I'm tickled to death.

Thanks much!

Biztree is the maker of Business-in-a-Box, the World's leading business & legal forms software. Our library contains over 1,500 documents in 4 different languages - it's over 15,000 pages of content. So no need to say that when we need to apply changes to all our documents, doing it manually is a Herculean task!

I first discovered WordPipe about 3 years ago. I had tried different tools but nothing was working fine; these other softwares were making our computers crash or even worst, corrupted the documents. I was so happy after I bought WordPipe, what a great product! It helped us save tens of hours of boring and unproductive work. The software was very good at that time but I just upgraded to the latest version and it is even better! It is SUPER stable and quicker than ever. I recommend WordPipe to anybody who has to make bulk changes in Word - at this price you can't afford not to use it.
