    Duff-Man says....I assume you are talking about doing this for free? There are a couple things you can try - download AbiWord (its a free word processing pgm) - it has an "open as Wordperfect" option and a save as Word option - it may do the trick if your document is not too complicated. You can also d/l an old Mac version of Wordperfect for free (I don't have the link handy but its been on the forums before so you could probably search and find it - you'll need Classic installed though as its an OS 9 era application.....oh yeah!

    Or, if possible, ask the sender to do the conversion. there's a save-in-Word-format option within wordperfect.
