Call Microsoft disk orders at 800/360-7561. A few years ago I had a
similar problem (made particularly annoying by the fact that Ami
could save to RTF, but I couldn't open those RTF files in Word), and
they sent me a free conversion disk for importing Ami Pro files. That
solved essentially all my problems.

That was Word 6.0, but I bet they have a current version of the disk
-- and if not, conversion from Ami to Word 6.0 would probably do the
trick in any case.

The converter might be on the Microsoft Web site, too.
