I have been given the job of converting some old files with a .wpt file extension written on a brother word processor to a pc format, preferably word.
Is there a free/cheap downloadable program on the www that will do this??

Thanks for any help

Try using the Office converter you can add it as a componant by running the office cd... there are extra converters on the microsoft web site.

wpt is word perfect I believe.

'.wpt' is a Word Perfect Template file and can be opened from MS Word if WordPerfect is not available.

Open MS Word, from the dropdown 'File' go to 'Open' and open the files from where you have placed them on the PC, floppy etc.

According to click here it is a WordPerfect Template Document file. As nor=ted above, you should be able to import these into Word provided that you have loaded the converters (which I believe are not installed by default).

It's not a Word Perfect template - it was created on a Brother dedicated WP system !!

In the (Word 2000) File menu, choose open, then choose, from the file type pull down, "Recover text from any File" option.

You will ahve to get rid of some formatting rubbish, but I've used this sucessfully on similar WP files.

Sorry - got a bit carried away there!

No problem. I've never used a Brother and never tried to import Brother files into Word so was just gassing off as ever.
