      The WPLO Converter lets you drop WP files on it and converts them to OS X. (It uses LibreOffice internally.) You can drop multiple files on it. Downl a oad

        Also, by searching the web, you can find information on command-line conversion using LibreOffice. Try one of the LibreOffice or OpenOffice.org forums for details. Or you can look in the script in the WPLO Converter, which uses LibreOffice's command-line conversion.

        Thanks. It worked perfectly. Converted about one hundred letters/reports in about one minute. Dave
