There are two ways to bring a document originally created in XyWrite on an IBM or compatible into Word for the Macintosh versions 3.x or 4.00:
The first method is as follows:
Create a print file in XyWrite.
Load the file into Word. Search for each specific control code and replace with nothing.
The second method is as follows:
Use the Word-to-Word conversion utility. It is available from XyQuest by calling (508) 671-0888. This utility converts a normally formatted XyWrite file to a formatted Word file for the PC.
Transfer the document to a Macintosh disk and read it into Word for the Macintosh.
