Last reviewed: July 6, 1998
Article ID: Q105196



The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Macintosh, versions 4.0, 5.0, 5.1

SUMMARY

This article contains questions and answers about converting files from one version of Microsoft Word for the Macintosh to another.

MORE INFORMATION

   1. Q. I'd like to open my Word 4.0 documents in Word 5.0 or 5.1. How
         do I convert them?

      A. You do not need to convert Word 4.0 documents to open them in
         Word version 5.0 or 5.1. Open your Word 4.0 documents as you
         would Word 5.0 or 5.1 documents, by choosing Open from the File
         menu.

   2. Q. How do I open a Word 5.0 or 5.1 document in Word 4.0?

      A. Word 4.0 reads Word 5.0 and 5.1 documents directly; no
         conversion is necessary. Open these documents in Word 4.0 in
         the usual manner.
