Importing and Exporting Word Documents in WordPerfect

WordPerfect can open documents created in most versions of Microsoft Word just by selecting the file to be opened as if it were a Wordperfect document. The document will be automatically converted to Wordperfect format although not all of the formatting may be converted properly.

The following font features are either not converted or are converted to a slightly different variant:

The following paragraph features are either not converted or are converted to a slightly different variant:

The following page features are either not converted or are interpreted differently.

The following formatting features are either not converted or are interpreted differently.

There are also a number of field commands that either do not convert or convert to the result of the command only.

 

You can convert your Wordperfect document back into Word format by using the Save As option from the File menu and selecting the appropriate file format from the drop down list at the bottom of the dialog box. Again due to the different ways in which Word and Wordperfect store the information about the file, there will be a conversion process where certain of the formatting information is either not converted or is converted to something slightly different.

For more information select Microsoft Word Help from the Help menu in your copy of WordPerfect
