Windows 7: How to convert MS xps documents to Word in Office 2010?

How to convert MS xps documents to Word in Office 2010?

Hello all,

I have Office 2010 installed. I often print an online news article to the xps format. Sometimes I have the need to convert this format to Word.


The question is how do I make the conversion without using a free software. It is preferable to use a software that would retain the original format of the article.


Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to help me find such a software.


Thank you.

Try to convert XPS to a DOC* format is a complicated OCR task, same as trying to take a picture of an old newspaper and then trying to scan and make it editable in Word.

You need something like ABBYY FineReader 11 Professional Edition
It keeps original formatting as much as possible.

thank you for your reply. I did some research on the internet which basically concludes the same as you. Instead of printing to the MS xps document printer I am now printing to the pdf format. Converting from pdf to Word is very easy as there are plenty of freeware that does it.
