Dear members,

I have a problem with import of word files in Transit XV. My Transit version allows Import of 95/97/2000 Word files. On my PC I have installed a new Word version which does not support saving files to an older Word version than 2003. So, the import of new Word files doesn't work.

I tried to import an older Word file from 1999 and it worked. So, I assume the problem is that I have installed a new Word version and can not save files to the Word version required by Transit. Before installation of the new Word version it worked fine.

Does anyone know whether filters for newer Word file types are available for Transit XV?

Hello Stephanie,

In order to overcome this issue and to be able to save the save as word 2000 or older, you can install Openoffice\LibreOffice and open the Word file with it and save it as Word 97-2000.

Best regards

How about saving as RTF and import that? Though I've seen shifts in formatting due to the RTF roundtrip (with older Word versions).

Thank you very much for your answers.

I will try the Word installation. Yes, RTF works, but styles and formatting of the customer document would be lost partially. So, RTF only works for "simple" files.

Best regards

Stephanie
