Re: [midatlanticretro] Word/Excel for Classic Mac questionsJeff --
Thanks a lot. I have something like 95 files that need converting so anything that can speed it up would be appreciated.

Sorry I only have Excel, Word 3.0, 4.0, 5.0 (mabye 6.0). It's been a while since I have used them. Not sure if there is a converter for Word 6. But I know that there should be a program that will convert a bunch of files at once into different formats. Mac Link Plus was the name of it I believe. Not sure if this helps. I will take a look at my disks and see if there is anything else that can help you.

Subject: [midatlanticretro] Word/Excel for Classic Mac questions
Happy new year to everyone. Today I found some old Mac disks from college and I have a Mac question for the experts on the list. The documents I found are Word 1 and Excel 1 format which don't seem to be readable by Word 6 and Excel 5.
I can use a two-step process of running Word 3 running in vMac to convert from Word 1.x to 3.x and then converting it to Word 6 running in Basilisk, but I wondered if any Mac experts on the list knew of a more direct conversion method like an installable file converter for Word 6.
On a partially-related note, I installed Excel 2.2 for some other conversions but I found that disk 2 is corrupt. Does anyone have a copy they could shoot me? Thanks!
