This article explains how to convert files that were created in WordPerfect version 6 or later into Word 2000 files.
Word 2000 provides a WordPerfect 6.x converter for opening files that are saved in the WordPerfect 6.x file format. WordPerfect versions 7.0 and 8.0 share a file format that is similar to WordPerfect 6.x, with some File Header changes.
You can use the WordPerfect 6.x converter to open in Word 2000 any files saved in the WordPerfect 6.0 or 6/7/8 format. WordPerfect 7.0 uses a default Save As format of WordPerfect 6.0, and WordPerfect 8.0 uses a default Save As format of the WordPerfect 6/7/8 format.
WordPerfect versions 7.0 and 8.0 also have alternative formats available, so you can save your file in a compatible format that Word 2000 can open, such as Word for Windows 6, and so on.
The WordPerfect 6.x converter is included with Word and is part of the Run from My Computer installation.
After you do this, open the file in Word. To do this, click Open on the File menu, select the file, and then click Open.
