Publish Word documents to a SharePoint Wiki  

Mar 172009

How do you copy the content from a Word document to a Wiki library? A simple Copy&Paste does not work, as it omits the pictures from the document.

Andreas Strothmann has posted a interesting way for deploying Word docs to a Wiki library.

His steps are:

  1. Open your Word document
  2. Save it as docx if it is an old doc
  3. Publish the document to a SharePoint Blog
    Note: the pictures included in the Word document will be uploaded to the Blog picture library! So do not delete the Blog site later, and make sure your Wiki visitors can read items from the picture library.
  4. Open the Blog entry in your browser and click on the Edit Button
  5. Copy the whole entry
  6. Paste the clipboard to a Wiki page

Hi, what exactly do you mean by a SharePoint Blog: a team discussion, a document library, something else? Thanks, Kim

Hi Kim,
a SharePoint blog. Like this one.
Create a new site, and select Blog as template.
