C# API to Convert MHTML to DOTX
Get Started with .NET File Format APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
Document document = new Document("template.mhtml"); // save MHTML as a DOC document.Save("DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat.Doc); // load Doc with an instance of Document var outputDocument = new Aspose.Words.Document("DocOutput.doc"); // call save method while passing SaveFormat.Dotx outputDocument.Save("output.dotx", SaveFormat.Dotx);
Decrypt MHTML File using Owner Password via .NET
Before converting MHTML to DOTX, if you want to decrypt your document you can do it by using the API. In order to decrypt the PDF file, you first need to create a Document object and open the MHTML using the owner’s password. After that, you need to call Decrypt method of the Document object. Finally, save the updated file using Save method of the Document object.
Document document = new Document("Decrypt.mhtml", "password"); // decrypt MHTML document.Decrypt(); // save the decrypted document as doc document.Save("Decrypt_out.doc");
Create ReadOnly DOTX- File via .NET
In order to protect your DOTX from editing and to prevent other people from editing sensitive and confidential information in your document, you can also set the protection of the document using the API. You can limit the ability to edit a document and only allow certain actions with it. This can be done using Aspose.Words for .NET API. It enables you to control the way you restrict the content using the ProtectionType enumeration parameter. You can set your document to read-only by using the following lines of code.
Document document = new Document("input.doc"); // apply document protection and set protection password doc.Protect(ProtectionType.ReadOnly, "password"); // call save method while passing SaveFormat.Dotx document.Save("output.dotx", SaveFormat.Dotx);

What is MHTML File Format?
MHTML files are often created by web browsers when users save web pages for offline viewing or archiving purposes. By bundling all the necessary resources into one file, MHTML ensures that the web page can be viewed and rendered accurately, even without an internet connection or access to the original server.
The MHTML format follows the MIME standard, which is used for encoding and exchanging various types of data over the internet. It uses multipart MIME encoding to package the HTML code and associated resources into a single file. The file typically has a .mht or .mhtml file extension.
MHTML files can be opened and viewed by web browsers that support the format, such as Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, and Opera. Some text editors and specialized software also provide the ability to open and edit MHTML files.
The MHTML format offers advantages in terms of portability and convenience, as it allows users to save and share web pages as a single file, ensuring the preservation of the page’s layout, formatting, and linked resources. However, it’s worth noting that MHTML is not as widely used as other web formats like HTML or PDF, and compatibility may vary across different software and platforms.
What is DOTX File Format?
The DOTX file format is a file extension used by Microsoft Word to store document templates. It is a variant of the DOCX format and is based on the Open XML file standard. DOTX files serve as reusable templates that contain predefined formatting, styles, and content for creating new documents.
When a DOTX template is opened in Microsoft Word or a compatible word processing program, it creates a new document based on the template. The template’s formatting, styles, and other design elements are applied to the new document, providing consistency and saving time in formatting and layout. Users can then customize the content while maintaining the predefined structure of the template.
DOTX files are particularly useful when creating documents with consistent branding, such as letterheads, invoices, or reports. They allow organizations to establish a unified look and feel across their documents and ensure adherence to corporate standards.
To create a DOTX file, you can start by designing a document template in Microsoft Word or any other program that supports the Open XML format. Once the template is finalized, you can save it as a DOTX file. This allows you to reuse the template for future documents, ensuring consistency and streamlining the document creation process.
When working with DOTX files, it’s important to note that they do not contain any macros or scripting functionality like their DOTM counterparts. DOTX files are focused solely on document formatting and structure, making them suitable for situations where macros or custom programming are not required.
