You question is not clear, you have not described your problem in enough detail.

Why would you want to use C++ for this?
Why can't you just select Save As from the work menu?
Why can't you use copy?
What is the purpose of the program you are trying to write?

Assuming you have access to the Windows API then I suggest you use

BOOL CopyFile(
LPCTSTR lpExistingFileName,
LPCTSTR lpNewFileName,
BOOL bFailIfExists


BOOL CopyFileEx(
LPCTSTR lpExistingFileName,
LPCTSTR lpNewFileName,
LPVOID lpData,
LPBOOL pbCancel,
DWORD dwCopyFlags

If you don't have access to the Windows API then you will need to use functions


To open the source and destination files (in binary mode) read data from the source and write data to the destination and then close both files again.

Hai Banfa,

thanks for ur reply...

Itz working supervly...

But this CopyFile() method is not suitable for my project...

I want only "SaveAs" method for my project....

Can u please tell me

How to save an old file into a new fie by using "save as"...

The manual process is that...

if there is a file named 1.doc... we will open it with ms word...

then click file->save as.. button for saving the contents of 1.doc to a
new file named as 2.doc...

I want to automate this process in my program using any SaveAs() method
like CopyFile() method

is there any source code available for this process...

plzz help me...

thanks for ur reply..

There is no such method as SaveAs.

If you open a document in Word and then "Save As" you are effectively copying it which is what CopyFile does.

That code relies on the classes CkHttp, CkString which are products of Chilkat software. If you have and are willing to spend the several $100 they cost I would suggest that you then contact Chilkat support for help in using them.

You may be able to do something with the MFC classes CHttpConnection and CHtmlView. Perhaps you can get CHtmlView to render to a jpg file instead of the screen.

Otherwise it's a case of loading the HTML (and related files, css and images for example), rendering it to an image and then saving that image in JPG format.
