    Hello everyone,

    I want to find text and extract a rest of line after the found line till
    line end.
    Does anyone know how to do this?

    Regards,

    P.S. My code looks like this so far:
    word = win32com.client.Dispatch("Word.Application")
    doc = word.Documents.Add(filenamePath.doc)
    search = doc.Content.Find
    ?... and then ... ?

    Hi,

    I use wvware to extract the plain text of ms-word.

    Then you can use the string methods of the standard
    library.

    This way you don't need win32 and it can run on unix, too.
