Subject:quick Word question about ASCII From:"William J. Hartzer" <William -dot- Hartzer -at- EMC2-TAO -dot- FISC -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 15 Nov 1994 09:01:00 EST
Why don't you simply do a 'select all' and highlight the whole
document. Then save it.
If that doesn't work, I would do a 'select all' and select the whole
document. Then do a 'copy' or 'cut' (I prefer 'copy because there's
less of a chance of losing it). Then minimize that MS Word window,
open a Wordperfect session, and simply paste your original text into
a new Wordperfect document. Then save it as ASCII in Wordperfect.
Other people may have other ways of doing this, but this is the way I
would do it.
