If I had this problem I would:
Open the Word Pro documents individually.

Lets take Document One
Ctrl+A will copy the contents of the file
Open Accessories - Word Pad
Ctrl + V will post the contents into the dialogue box.

Save this as File Name as Text type.

Transfer this file over to new machine with Flash USB Drive/Floppy Disk etc.

Now open the text file on the new machine & copy & paste the contents to a blank sheet in WORD.

Lotus WordPro does a pretty good job of saving things in Word format. It would give the best results overall if the docs were opened on the old computer using the Lotus WordPro, then saving them as Word (97 format is best supported version) .DOC documents.

It's boring, and not the fastest solution, but the overall result would be best.

Have we not done this before? I seem to remember responding to this thread advising saving all Lotus word files as .rtf which can then be opened in any word/text processor?

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
