    Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Cloud. Using Confluence Server? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Exported a page to Word, and this is at the top of the resulting HTML file (when opened in a text editor):

      Message-ID: <117338914.3.1343020657541.JavaMail.atlassian@Atlassians-MacBook-Air.local>
      Subject: Exported From Confluence
      MIME-Version: 1.0
      Content-Type: multipart/related; 
      	boundary="----=_Part_2_792693002.1343020657520"
      
      ------=_Part_2_792693002.1343020657520
      Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
      Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
      Content-Location: file:///C:/exported.html
      

      The file is not a valid Word document, in fact it rather seems to be a .eml file. It is basically coincidental that Microsoft Word can open the file. A major problem with even this is that *file:///C:/* prefix is added to each content element (images, etc), regardless to the operating system/browser that you use it for export. This path is not even valid on most Windows machines for such exports.

      Workaround

      A work around exists - export the page as a PDF, and convert the PDF to Microsoft Word Format:

      1. Export the page to PDF. Once you do this, you can follow this documentation to convert it to .doc.
      2. Use this PDF to Word Doc Converter.
