Actaully you should be able to open the files directly in Excel and then do a Save As and saving it as an Excel workbook (.xls).

SAM-files are wordprocessing files. Spreadsheets are saved as 123-files.

If You still have the Lotus SmartSuite package installed, it should be possible to save the files as Word-files or as RTF-files.

If You have the package installed and there are many files to convert take a look at:

As far as I remember this converter writes Wordfiles as well.

If You don't have the SmartSuite installed take a look at:

This is a direct link to download a WordPro viewer, that might help You.
