am converting a large amount of documentation from
WordPerfect 8.00.225 to Word 2000. Although opening the
files in WordPerfect and using save as translates all the
information and graphics into Word, much of the formatting
is lost, information is put into text boxes and all the
text appears in PRIVATE fields.

All of the other workarounds I tried, based on using Word
to import the file, end up opening and running a utility
called WordPerfect Graphics Import 8.0. This seems to
work, but after about 5 min. of processing, the
application freezes at 91%. To cancel, I have to do a
Ctrl+Alt+Delete and click End Task for Word, listed as not

Does anyone know of another workaround, know about why the
Import feature locks up and/or know of another plug in I
can download to convert the files without having to
reformat all of the text?
