Need to convert Wordperfect Macro to Office Word

Need to convert this macro to Word. The wordperfect macro is below.  

Application (A1; "WordPerfect"; Default; "US")
FileSave ("C:\testfolder\file.prn"; ASCIIStandard!)
Close ()

I recorded a macro in Word 2003/2007, saving it to the location, however, I do not know how to migrate the ASCIIStandard over. It keeps saving it in a *.txt format.

I don't now much about programming in VB, any help will be appreciated.

How does ASCIIStandard differ from a text file?
Perhaps you could post the recorded macro and tell us what that does wrong.

The problem was that it was saving the file as fileprn.txt instead of file.prn

I redid the Macro today and it seems to be working. Word does throw in a lot of additional information, is all of this required for the Macro to work?

Sub ALNT1()

    ChangeFileOpenDirectory "\\filer2\atlas\dept\rev\revact\"
    ActiveDocument.SaveAs FileName:="tmp1.prn", FileFormat:=wdFormatText, _
        LockComments:=False, Password:="", AddToRecentFiles:=True, WritePassword _
        :="", ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, EmbedTrueTypeFonts:=False, _
        SaveNativePictureFormat:=False, SaveFormsData:=False, SaveAsAOCELetter:= _
        False, Encoding:=1252, InsertLineBreaks:=False, AllowSubstitutions:=False _
        , LineEnding:=wdCRLF
    Application.WindowState = wdWindowStateNormal
End Sub
