Tracy Boyington wondered how to convert Ventura files to Word format.
By curious coincidence, I just came across what would seem to be the
product of your dreams: "Masterhelp Ventura Conversion". (Old
<stitch>: Found it in the latest edition of _Technical
Communication_, so it looks like my STC membership will
benefit someone other than me!)

Contact: Performance Software Inc, 589 Southlake Boul., Richmond, VA.
23236, (804) 794-1012,

The product is designed to convert Ventura 4.1/4.2 files to Word for
Windows or Frame, and preserve all the big features (including
tables) while so doing; the company also offers a turnkey conversion
service (you send the files and a cheque, they return the converted
files). Caveats: I've never used the product, never heard of it or
seen a review, and I don't work with the company. That being said, it
sounds like just the right product for your needs, and hopefully some
techwhirler can comment further on how good the product really is.
