      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.
