Do you have Lotus installed in your other PCs to be able to read the files?

Lotus is installed on both however I have had a thought that the XP compatability settings may be different Naesby

Files in Lotus Word Pro are usually saved as .LWP files which require Lotus to read them but you are also able to save them in Lotus as .DOC files.
I would suggest you save them as .DOC files and they will then be able to be read by WORD and also WORDPAD which most people have.
