Don't bother with v97 rtf. it doesn't work as a Frame import.

Download the updated filter from Microsoft's wen site under

This will enable you to save the Word document as a real v6/95 which Frame imports very well. I know...I'm in the middle of a 70 page document now.

BTW...nice network fax boards.

Has anyone else had trouble importing Word 97 files saved in .rtf
format into FrameMaker 5.5? I'm running on a NT 4.0 platform. I've
searched the archives, and the Adobe web site, but the solution eludes
me. I get the "Unknown File Format" dialog, select "Windows RTF" and get
to 99% complete on the conversion, then it hangs.
