Hi,

is there a way to convert a SXW file into a format that can be read by Word? I don't even know what it has been created with. Based on a Google research, I assume that it has been created with StarOffice or OpenOffice, but I don't dispose of any of these programs.

Alternative: Is there someone around who would be willing to convert this file for me into a MS Word readable format (TXT, DOC, RTF)?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,

Céline

double-click it Jun 8, 2004

Hi Céline,

Simply double-click the file and save it as doc. If this does not work, drag the file into an open instance of Word.

Regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan, I tried your idea, but it did not work with my PC/installation. But thanks anyway.
Best regards, Céline
