1-Purchase MacLinkPlus from DataViz
<http://www.dataviz.com/products/maclinkplus/index.html> and use it to
convert your .wpd files to .doc or .cwk files. This, at first, might
seem like the ideal solution, but in practice, if your documents have
complex formatting, the MacLinkPlus translators can be disappointing.
2/3-Download AbiWord (free) <http://www.abisource.com/> or NeoOffice
(free) <http://www.planamesa.com/neojava/en/index.php> and use one of
them to open your documents and save them as .doc files for use in Word.
Both of these programs use the same exact translators, so it doesn't
matter which you use.
4-Download the last version of WordPerfect for Macintosh and run it in
the Classic environment; it will read your .wpd files and you can save
them as .doc files.
