...simply RIGHT click on the file, choose "Open With", choose "Choose Program", then place a CHECK mark in the box that says: "Always use this program to open this type of file", then scroll to the "Microsoft Word" selection and double click on it.
WordPerfect 5.0 should be one of the default converters in your Word 2003 package. It is in Word 2002 on this machine.
If it opens in Word corrctly, you should be able to save the file as a Word doc by clicking on "File", the upper left, choose "Save As", then choose the "Save as Type" line as a .doc file.
Hope this helps.
I am a new assistant for a gentleman that has all his documents (4,000!)in WordPerfect 5.0. The computer I am working on has MicroSoft 2003. I would like to convert the files from 5.0 to Word, but I don't have the disc. Apparently, he has lost it over the course of a couple of office moves. Is this possible? If so, how?
