Are you just wanting to rename the files to .WP or actually convert the format?  as if you run a DOS promt and change to the location you can just type RENAME *.TXT *.WP  But I don't know of any convert programs that will group convert all of the files automatically without you having to individually convert each file

XD, not knowing which version of WordPerfect you have it's difficult to be entirely accurate, but WP6.1, WP7.0 etc and WP8.0 all have conversion routines built into the product. If you can tell me the origin of the original files (their original formats) and which version of WP your using, I can spell it out for you as we have all versions from 5.0 through 8.1 running here on test equipment.

1. From a document window, choose OPEN from the FILE menu, select data file in another format, then choose OK.

or

From a form file, choose GO TO DATA from the MERGE feature bar, choose SELECT, specify a data file in another format, then choose OK.

2. Select the format of the file from the CONVERT FILE FORMAT FROM drop-down list, then choose OK.

If you specify ASCII delimited text, you will be prompted for additional information, just insert the info as necessary.
