Converting files

  Jule 13:20 04 Jul 2006

Can anyone tell me how to convert files from Microsoft Works 3.0 and Microsoft Word into Lotus WordPro. I have tried opening them but they appear as gibberish. Thanks

Try saving them as *.RTF instead of *.Doc, and opening them in Word Pro

I should have said, these files have been loaded from a memory stick, they are from my son's coursework so i don't think i can alter the way they are saved - or can i?

Try right click > Open With > WordPad. Then copy and paste into WordPro.

Memory stick shouldn't affect this as it is just a source of a file - you can save back to it or to your PC or wherever you like.

One method (although it sounds like you might lost formatting and graphics) is in the below (from searching the lotus support site):

Other than that you should be able to find convertors by searching google, although I must admit they didn't jump out when I had a quick look!
