Convert Lotus Wordpro file to Microsoft Word ?
Q. If someone has sent you an .lwp file, but you can't open
it in MS Word 2000, then what can you do ?
A. After searching the Web there doesn't seem a simple way
of doing it. The only way I found was by downloading this program
from Lotus for free (Lotus KeyView);
This will open the .lwp file, so you can then copy and paste the
data into MS Word. If you have a better way then post it below.
The above address now seems to hold the file, click on Kvlotus.exe
file for download.

Comment - Just a short note to thank you for the tip for
converting from .lwp to .doc...downloading the Lotus Keyview and
copying and pasting the document into Word works great. Thanks!

Comment - An absolute life saver, but it did a miserable
job of formatting the document.

Comment - I agree with Fred - no page formatting at all,
but as far as retriving the cryptic data from a wordpro file its
brilliant! I had a CD somewhere with wordpro on, and managed to
misplace it... THANK YOU!

Comment - Thanks for this. Worked well. The LWP file had
data in tabular format, which didnt convert to MS Word. Didn't matter
though, just printed it and it was fine.

Comment - Actually, if you open with Lotus KeyView, print
to Adobe PDF (you have to have an Adobe PDF Printer), open the PDF
with Adobe, save as a Microsoft Word (.dot) file, it will keep all
formatting. Good Luck!

Comment - I had to ask for lotus keyveiw (very demeaning)
and a guy wanted to make home or office visit to advise me on my
individual needs.... Bah! Instead, I went to my office and printed
it off and scanned into my AABBYY reader and saved to Word! Excellent.
as for keyview, what a cheek.... I'm hoping to invest in a Hal 9000,
that will be just the ticket.

Comment - This is only if you still have Lotus Word Pro
installed on you PC. Open the Word Pro Document, on the File menu,
click SAVE AS. Then scroll down the LIST OF FILE TYPES, list until
you find the most recent or latest version of Microsoft Word that
is listed. Click on that latest version, then click OK. You also
have the ability to save to a different directory, you will want
to choose this before you click OK.
