preserve the "live" table math in WP documents - the spreadsheet-
like feature that automatically updates a sum when you change a
value in another cell.
Absolutely NO software - NONE - can convert this feature from
WPWin into another format. Not Word, not Acrobat, not OpenOffice.org,
not MacLink Plus, not WP for the Mac, not anything at all except
WordPerfect for Windows or WordPerfect for DOS.
So, in answer to the original poster, the ONLY solution is to use
WordPerfect for Windows for these files, which can be done fairly
easily (with the ability to print them) using VMware Fusion on a
Mac. (Also Parallels, but Parallels is slower and flakier and there's
no reason to use it instead of Fusion. VirtualBox can't print without
elaborate setting-up, so it's not an alternative that's worth
