How to convert HTML to a Word DOCX Document in Python

Let’s look at how to use one of our APIs to easily convert HTML to DOCX.

Install the convert API client using pip installer:

pip install git+

Call convert_web_html_to_docx, which accepts an HTML string as its input:

from __future__ import print_function
import time
import cloudmersive_convert_api_client
from import ApiException
from pprint import pprint
# Configure API key authorization: Apikey
configuration = cloudmersive_convert_api_client.Configuration()
configuration.api_key['Apikey'] = 'YOUR_API_KEY'
# Uncomment below to setup prefix (e.g. Bearer) for API key, if needed
# configuration.api_key_prefix['Apikey'] = 'Bearer'
# create an instance of the API class
api_instance = cloudmersive_convert_api_client.ConvertWebApi(cloudmersive_convert_api_client.ApiClient(configuration))
input_request = cloudmersive_convert_api_client.HtmlToOfficeRequest() # HtmlToOfficeRequest |
api_response = api_instance.convert_web_html_to_docx(input_request)
except ApiException as e:
print("Exception when calling ConvertWebApi->convert_web_html_to_docx: %s\n" % e)

And it’s just that easy! This function supports rich text formatting as well as images (we recommend using qualified URLs).
