Export related procedures in class Document (Word VBA)

This page presents procedures from class Document related to the theme Export: ExportAsFixedFormat and ExportAsFixedFormat2

ExportAsFixedFormat

Saves a document as PDF or XPS format.

Syntax : expression.ExportAsFixedFormat (OutputFileName, ExportFormat, OpenAfterExport, OptimizeFor, Range, From, To, Item, IncludeDocProps, KeepIRM, CreateBookmarks, DocStructureTags, BitmapMissingFonts, UseISO19005_1, FixedFormatExtClassPtr)

Dim strOutputFileName As String: strOutputFileName =  
ActiveDocument.ExportAsFixedFormat OutputFileName:=strOutputFileName, ExportFormat:=wdExportFormatPDF

Arguments

The following arguments are required:

OutputFileName (String) - The path and file name of the new PDF or XPS file.

ExportFormat (WdExportFormat) - Specifies either PDF or XPS format.

Possible Values are wdExportFormatPDF - Export document into PDF format, wdExportFormatXPS - Export document into XML Paper Specification (XPS) format.

The following arguments are optional

OpenAfterExport (Boolean) - Opens the new file after exporting the contents.

OptimizeFor (WdExportOptimizeFor) - Specifies whether to optimize for screen or print.

Possible Values are wdExportOptimizeForOnScreen - Export for screen, which is a lower quality and results in a smaller file size, wdExportOptimizeForPrint - Export for print, which is higher quality and results in a larger file size.

Range (WdExportRange) - Specifies whether the export range is the entire document, the current page, a range of text, or the current selection. The default is to export the entire document.

Possible Values are

wdExportAllDocument Exports the entire document.
wdExportCurrentPage Exports the current page.
wdExportFromTo Exports the contents of a range using the starting and ending positions.
wdExportSelection Exports the contents of the current selection.

From (Long) - Specifies the starting page number, if the Range parameter is set to wdExportFromTo.

To (Long) - Specifies the ending page number, if the Range parameter is set to wdExportFromTo.

Item (WdExportItem) - Specifies whether the export process includes text only or includes text with markup.

Possible Values are wdExportDocumentContent - Exports the document without markup, wdExportDocumentWithMarkup - Exports the document with markup.

IncludeDocProps (Boolean) - Specifies whether to include document properties in the newly exported file.

KeepIRM (Boolean) - Specifies whether to copy IRM permissions to an XPS document if the source document has IRM protections. Default value is True.

CreateBookmarks (WdExportCreateBookmarks) - Specifies whether to export bookmarks and the type of bookmarks to export.

Possible Values are wdExportCreateHeadingBookmarks - Create a bookmark in the exported document for each Microsoft Word heading, which includes only headings within the main document and text boxes not within headers, footers, endnotes, footnotes, or comments, wdExportCreateNoBookmarks - Do not create bookmarks in the exported document, wdExportCreateWordBookmarks - Create a bookmark in the exported document for each Word bookmark, which includes all bookmarks except those contained within headers and footers.

DocStructureTags (Boolean) - Specifies whether to include extra data to help screen readers, for example information about the flow and logical organization of the content. Default value is True.

BitmapMissingFonts (Boolean) - Specifies whether to include a bitmap of the text. Set this parameter to True when font licenses do not permit a font to be embedded in the PDF file. If False, the font is referenced, and the viewer's computer substitutes an appropriate font if the authored one is not available. Default value is True.

UseISO19005_1 (Boolean) - Specifies whether to limit PDF usage to the PDF subset standardized as ISO 19005-1. If True, the resulting files are more reliably self-contained but may be larger or show more visual artifacts due to the restrictions of the format. Default value is False.

FixedFormatExtClassPtr - Specifies a pointer to an add-in that allows calls to an alternate implementation of code. The alternate implementation of code interprets the EMF and EMF+ page descriptions that are generated by the applications to make their own PDF or XPS.
