You can insert the full contents of a Microsoft Word or Excel document in a new or existing web page. When you drag a Word or Excel document into your page, Dreamweaver receives the converted HTML and inserts it into your web page. The file’s size, after Dreamweaver receives the converted HTML, must be less than 300K.
Instead of dragging the file, you can also paste portions of a Word document and preserve the formatting.
The content in this article is applicable only for Dreamweaver CC 2015 and earlier versions.
If you use Microsoft Office 97, you cannot import the contents of a Word or Excel document; you must insert a link to the document.
- Text Only: Inserts unformatted text. If the original text is formatted, all the formatting is removed.
- Text With Structure: Inserts text that retains structure, but does not retain basic formatting. For example, you can paste text and retain the structure of paragraphs, lists, and tables, without retaining bold, italics, and other formatting.
- Text With Structure Plus Basic Formatting: Inserts both structured and simple HTML-formatted text. For example, paragraphs, tables, and text formatted with bold, italic, underlined.
- Text With Structure Plus Full Formatting: Inserts text that retains all structure, HTML formatting, and CSS styles.
- Clean Up Word Paragraph Spacing: Eliminates extra space between paragraphs when you paste your text if you selected Text With Structure or Basic Formatting.
The contents of the Word or Excel document appear in your page.
