I need to convert MS Word documents to straight ascii text documents in a java program. Does anyone know a quick easy way of doing this, I know it is possible to open MS Word document from within a program, so I was wondering if it would be possible to save the document as a .txt file within the program (as this would let Word deal with the task of converting the file)?

I found this discussion on the Sun site, perhaps it'll give you a starting point. How to read from a MS Word document?
Hope this helps
