Good afternoon,

Well, certainly two options that I encountered in a brief search (I had a
similar conundrum with some early WordStar files--fortunately Microsoft had
a free plug-in utility on their site) are:

http://www.acii.com/conv.htm

http://www.leo.org/pub/comp/os/dos/utils/textutils/view121.idx.html

The second is, I think, a DOS-based freeware product. Good luck. DB.

Hi,

Please respond to me directly, not to the list. I will summarize.

I need to add some new information to a 200 page document that was written
in XyWrite. It hasn't been updated since 1985 (not a typo).

Does anyone know a painless way to convert this document from XyWrite 3 to
Word (I'm using Word 97)? The archives didn't have anything about
XyWrite/Word conversions.

Thanks in advance,
