All I can suggest is opening it in Notepad, resaving it to a TXT file and then opening it in Word. You'll lose all your formatting but you should be able to keep the actual doc.

Re: i need a .Lwp file turned into a .doc file???

its easy, well...if i understand correctly, now if your running xp, which im sure you are, go to tools, then folder options, click view, scroll down till you see "hide extensions for known file types" if its ticked, it means you cant see what type of file it ends in example corty.bmp, you wont see the .bmp, untick the box & all your files will now read these extensions, then just rename the file to .doc, dont tick any other boxes, if your unlucky, you wont be able to change it back. but that shouldnt happen, just dont tick anything that reads something like, always open these type of files with this program, if that doesnt work, i suggest a bottle of whiskey & a shotgun, that'll teach that damn computer whose boss hehehe

hope this helps mate

LWP are Lotus wordpro files.
See this thread on another forum - it may be of some help.
