Subject:DOS to word 7 conversion From:deborah madden <demadden -at- LYNX -dot- DAC -dot- NEU -dot- EDU> Date:Wed, 14 Aug 1996 14:16:40 -0400
i'm posting this message for an internet-challenged friend who needs doc
conversion advice. please email me directly so i can deliver your
responses to him.
here's the dilemma: he's trying to plan for a big doc conversion in his
department. they've produced their documentation using DOS 6, and now
they want to convert it to word 7, create on-line help and HTML files. i
suggested using robohelp for the online and HTML, but i'm not sure about
the DOS to word 7 conversion.
can anyone suggest a tool that would convert the DOS files to word 7
relatively simply and quickly? (is this asking a lot?) and please
forgive me if you've beaten this topic to a pulp already. i'm an
intermittent peruser, but an ardent fan of this group.
thanks a bunch!
