References not carried over from WordPerfect to rtf
Posted on 2005-03-14
I have a really tricky question, and would really appreciate any help anyone can give!
I have over 300 templates which have been converted from WordPerfect 9 to RTF format (in order to be used in both Word and WordPerfect by many users).
These templates have around 300 cross-references between them, each of which could either link to the same document, or a completely different document (one of the other 300ish templates).
In converting them over, the cross-references were replaced with either ?s if unresolved, or a fixed reference if they are resolved, so I need to manually re-create these cross-references.
However, I have no knowledge of the actual documents themselves, or how they should work (ie which clauses should be linked to what).
I can see that one of the old wpt files contain "Ref Para: cr15;?". Does the 'cr15' indicate a bookmark that should be found in another template, or is it a standard thing that wont be any use to me?
Can anyone suggest the best way of being able to find the matching bookmarks for the cross-references?
I have tried using EditPlus, but it views the text strangely (lots of square characters etc, so doesnt help me find the bookmarks or refs).
Any and all help and advice is much appreciated.
