There is tool called GrindEq for converting Latex document into MS word format, it work good if references are added using "Bibitem", but if references are inserted using "Bibtex" database, then references do not appear in MS word format. How can we proceed with conversion Latex to MS word if references in Latex document are added using bibtex?

  • @RomainPicot I fail to see how this question about a particular tool is a duplicate of a very generic question on the topic. – yo' Jan 15 '16 at 8:34
  • @yo' The last question from the OP say, for me, how can I do this but did not ask for using GrindEq especially I think – Romain Picot Jan 15 '16 at 8:36
  • But then we may say that OP is asking specifically about bibliography. It feels like "OK, I do not care about the rest of the document now... but you must help me insert the bibliography." A general question with the first answer saying "If I were you I would not do that" is not an appropriate reference. – Symbol 1 Jan 15 '16 at 9:38

I don't have GrindEq nor MS Word, but in the compilation of your TeX document a .bbl file is created (after the typical compile-a-few-times steps). This is actually the file which BibTeX converted the database into properly formatted \bibitems.

You can make a copy of your TeX file, and in this copy, instead of using the line \bibliography{...}, copy paste the contents of the .bbl file. This way, the new file contains the \bibitems directly, so it is independent of BibTeX.
