    Wp All Import was a tremenduous help to me when building a website for a friend of mine where I had to import almost 200 columns (articles) from as many Word documents.

    I built my XML file by iterating through the Word documents with VBA and filling in the appropriate nodes in the XML file from code. Some additional fields such as categories were collected and added from an Excel sheet with a VB program.

    This solution is very well designed and implemented with – for my use – only one area with room for improvement: The first versions of my XML files were not accepted but unfortunately without any hints about why. It would be very helpful if you provided messages to describe exactly why an XML file is not valid. After all, you know this, so you just need to tell us. 🙂

    Tip: In my case I struggled with the encoding. It turned out that it should be “windows-1252” when exporting from Word (I’m in Europe). After setting this correctly my import was done flawlessly in a moment. Thanks!
