The text is in Word format, including styles, images, etc., it means that you need to "decrypt" it. GUI_UPLOAD is to upload any file, but after that you need to decrypt.

Why would you want to do that? You're not going to "read" it unless you unpack the archive, parse the XML files and so on.

I guess one could do it via OLE integration, though I haven't tried it.

Hi sandra.rossi

Are there any function module or method available for decrypt? Please guide me.

Just because the customer asks, it doesn't follow that it is reasonable, possible or even just easy 😉

As both me and Sandra implied, you'll have to read the file structure somehow. This blogpost is about generating a DOCX file but it should give you a rough idea of what you are up against.

Lots of people have described in the forum how to read Word documents. Many ways. All are difficult. Probably OLE is the easiest way but many drawbacks: it's slow, it works only in dialog and if the user has MS Word installed.

You don't.
Microsoft Word is a means for preparing information in a human readable format. It is not used to share data between computers without human intervention.

You should try interactive pdf instead of Word document
