I have 200odd lotus WordPro files that I need to made understandable by MS Word, so convert to .doc or .rtf. There are some answers on EE about this but they are fairly old.
What is the current answer to batch converting these? I have MS Office 97 to 2007 available. Do any of these batch-convert Wordpro to Word? Any free s/w do this?

...Or nay other suggestion...

Many thanks.

Hi Peborgh,

Ms Word don't support Lotus WordPro conversion. You can try it from the WordPro  or with a 3rd party converter such as http://acii.com. You can download/purchase or use their conversion service through  http://acii.com/online.htm

thanks,

In the end I provided a Lotus Word pro reader to my clients and that solved it. They could cut-and-paste from that. As for the website you quoted, they were toooooooooooo expensive to consider for 300-odd files. They must be very rich!

Thanks anyway.

To the best of my knowledge IBM doesn't have a word processor of their own - this is among the reasons why IBM bought Lotus in the first place although they were even further behind 1-2-3 in the spreadsheet race.  So what earthly reason does IBM offer now for killing off the Lotus programs?
