I'm trying to write a program that will convert a Word document to an image. As best as I can figure, the only Microsoft Office files MATLAB supports are Excel files.
I found a free API ( cloudconvert ) that will convert between file types, but I'm having only partial success using it. Through plenty of trial and error, I've figured out how to convert and download a word document that I found online, but I can't figure out how to upload my own file.
The cloudconvert documentation says to include the file as a POST field. I can't figure out how to do this with webwrite; I can only include name-value pairs or a MATLAB structure, neither of which seems to help me.
I'd appreciate any help in figuring this out (or let me know if you think it's not possible).

Here's an example that uploads any file from MATLAB to DropBox programmatically:
Hopefully you can modify this example for your needs
