Converters for XPS files

Hello again :)
I was wondering if there is a converter for Microsoft's XPS files. Apparently XPS = XML Paper Specification - some form of compressed XML documents.
I will try and respond quicker than 3 months next time :oops:

Thanks

Re: Converters for Open Office files

Cheers the Odf2Txt converter worked a treat on my open office spreadsheets. Once I read the documentation and used the /Out= parameter.

Thanks again, and sorry for the months I've taken to post this reply.

Converters for Open Office files

I use CompareIt regularly to compare PDF documents and Microsoft XLS spreadsheets and find the built in converters very useful. I would like to be able to compare open office documents (text files (.ODT), and Spreadsheets (.ODS)). I have experimented with setting up my own converter to call the open...

1) If I click in the gutter on the left hand side of a line; Well, in fact most editors will do the same - this is because selection is extended beyond line end. However if you make copy or delete operation, it will be performed on selection, not on current line, as expected. Do you have a problem ...

VERY minor buggettes....

Hi. I'm using the 4.01.2159 beta every day: To compare PDFs, CSVs and XLSs. I could not work without it!! I have two small observations on the way the new version behaves. 1) If I click in the gutter on the left hand side of a line; intending to select the line, the line is highlighted, but a box is...

When I've used compare it in a batch file I've had to look for the results file to see what happened. I used the /G parameter to delete the report when files are identical, so if there is no results file then files match 100%. Also I used REGEX to force run dates etc. not to report as diffs. heres t...

Hi - I would like to add my vote for comparison profiles. I often have to compare fixed format files and do not want to ignore spaces, but I mainly do text compares where I do want to ignore all (nearly) spaces. The fixed format files always have the same suffix so a profile would be a great solution.

An update on CDB - It uses ODBC so can collect data from any ODBC compliant database. It does a good job of comparing content (highlighting differrences, allowing you to tailor the SQL that extracts data, and hence target the compare). It also can compare the structure of the tables.

Thanks for the pointer. Apexsql products look good, but unfortunately according to their FAQs page "ApexSQL Diff is designed to work with MSSQL7 and MSSQL2000 only" .

Database table compare ?

Hi I'm looking for some software to run on a PC to compare 2 database tables. These tables might be big, and I do not want to write sql to extract the data to flat files but compare a table in one database directly with a table in another database. In particular I'm interested in Oracle. Has anyone ...

Well thanks for your thoughts - I reviewed my regex 1 more time and used \d\d\/\d\d\/200\d\s\d\d:\d\d:\d\d\"$ and it works! I think I was escaping the $ last time as well as the quote. Dohh 'user error' again. :oops: Just one comment though, the help on regex mentions several special chars that requ...

Regular Expression including quote (") and end of line

Hi there CompareIt users. I am trying to use regular expressions to ignore the last field in a CSV file. The field is a timestamp in the format "07/03/2005 17:19:18", and it does have the double quotes surrounding it. I am familiar with regex in unix commands and was intending to use the $ as the en...
