    I have some documents that were created in Word Pro on Windows 98 - I am needing to get them into Word format and can't find any import filters - can anyone help please?

    Thanks

    1. Try File-Open, change the files of type to Recover text from any document (please don't forget to change it back when you're done).

    2. What happens when you try to open them now?

    3. Do you have WordPro? Can you Save as to Word FIRST?

    Thanks - it recovers the entire file but with the Word Pro formatting in text form - will try and plough through it. I tried loading Word Pro onto XP and it caused a disaster, making XP think it was Windows 98!! That took some repairing. I have no 98 systems any more.
