The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, version 6.0
This article provides information about limitations when opening Microsoft MultiPlan version 3.x, 4.0, and 4.2 spreadsheet files into Word 6.0 for Windows.
Features that are converted completely are not listed. Only features that are not converted or require some comment are included.
MultiPlan Feature Comments --------- -------- Formatting: Color Colors and border colors are not converted. Row height Rows take on the height of the cell in the row that contains the most data. Column width Most rows retain column width. Hidden columns and zero-width columns become a standard width. Regular MultiPlan MultiPlan tries to fit numbers in general formats format into the current column width. When converted, these numbers are brought in at their full precision. You may therefore see more decimal places than you did in your worksheet. Worksheet Size: Less than 32 columns A table is created in Word 6.0. More than 32 columns The worksheet is represented in Word 6.0 as or wider than 22 inches tab-delimited text. Other: Ranges The converter displays a dialog box asking you to choose from a list of range names. Type in a MultiPlan range (for example, b2..g43) or choose an existing range name (for example, my_data), or press ENTER to convert the entire worksheet. Password If the worksheet is password protected, you are asked to enter the password. You may have to reenter the password when beginning a print merge operation. Empty worksheets Empty worksheets are imported into Word 6.0 as a single empty cell.
The MultiPlan converter functions in one direction only. Data may be brought into Word 6.0 from MultiPlan files but not saved in MultiPlan format.
The information above is extracted from the SCNVINFO.DOC file supplied with the Word 6.0 for Windows Supplemental File Conversions Disks.
For information on limitations and options when converting to and from file formats for which converters are supplied with Word, double-click the Help button on the Standard toolbar in Word, and then type readme. Press ENTER twice, click File Conversion, and view the relevant Conversion Limitations topic.
