I have Lotus wordpro 97, as part of Lotus Smartsuite.
I can't export in a different format, but I can save as...
Using the drop-down box I just choose the file type I want to use.
I have found that if I save lotus docs as word docs the following help
1) save in a completely different location to my Lotus docs.
2) If the documents are long and complicated - ie a lot of frames etc. - there is a loss of information and I need to edit.
Regarding the latter I now have MS office 2000 added to my PC.
