How to convert the Bibliography to static text?

Jul 19, 2009 at 3:06 PM

I'm using Office 2007 and I know that Word allows it to convert the Bibliography to static content. But after i do so, my document crashes. So I hope there is an oportunity to convert the whole Bibliography like in the FAQ for citations?

I doubt this will solve your problem as the macro executes the exact same command (WordBasic.BibliographyBibliographyToText) as Word does. The only thing extra is that the macro looks for the citation, or in the case below for the bibliography field, to apply the conversion to.

Sub BibliographyToStaticText()

    Dim fld As Field
            
    ' Go over all stories, including main, footnotes, ...
    For Each sr In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges
        ' Find all bibliography fields and convert them to static text.
        For Each fld In sr.Fields
            If fld.Type = wdFieldBibliography Then
                fld.Select
                WordBasic.BibliographyBibliographyToText
            End If
        Next
    Next

End Sub

Alternatively, you could just try to save your document as a Word 97-2003 document (the old .doc extension). That way, new fields such as citations and bibliographies should be converted to static text.
