For anything related to FrameMaker, get a copy of "Frame Connections"
from Frame Technology (800-U4-FRAME). This is their resource guide to
3rd party vendors, consultants, etc. The have a section in the book on
filter resources.

Also, for Word, try the Microsoft Download Service BBS for the latest
filters, drivers, etc. The number is 206-936-6735.

Of course, sometimes you have to get creative... I recently had a problem
importing an AMIPro document into Frame4. Frame's current AP filter hung
half-way through the conversion process. So, I used MS-Word 6.0 to
import the AP document and export it in a format that Frame could handle:
MS-Word 2.0. To do this I had to download the AMIPro filter for Word.
It worked, and I didn't have to go back to the customer and ask for
another copy of the file or a copy of the file in ASCII or???
