After you have converted the Word Perfect document to a Word document, you may need to reformat some parts of the document (for example, formatting like page breaks and columns may not convert cleanly). After you've made these formatting changes, simply save the document again (remember: it's now a Word document and will save, by default, as a Word document). There are any number of private offerings which assert that they offer more accurate conversions. If you have a large library of Word Perfect files and are making the move to Word, we certainly encourage you to them out. Key words "Convert Word Perfect Word" is sufficient to take you to a listing of the current offerings over the Internet.
If the converted documents do not look sufficiently like the originals, you may wish to delete the new 'doc' files and manually convert the files.
