    word files do not open correctly in wordperfect

    Hello
    I run a medical transcription outfit and we have msoffice 2000 installed on all of our computers.
    We added a few clients who work on different versions of wordperfect and the charts sent to them do not open as they are meant to be. the page breaks etc. are not in their place.
    Can you suggest a solution without much investment.
    Thanks.

    Solution without much investment: make sure, that all Office 2000 converters are installed (Start | Settings | Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs | Microsoft Office 2000... | Add or Remove Office Features | Converters and Filters | Run all from My Computer) and save your Office document (File | Save As) as WordPerfect document version specific to your client.

    Better solution with much investment: purchase and install Adobe Acrobat and publish your documents as PDF.

    It they are running older versions of WordPerfect, you could try saving the files as an older version of Word doc, or even try saving them additionally in WordPerfect format, though that might create extra, undesirable workload if it's only to benefit a couple of recipients.

    Remember that WordPerfect 11 is out and this will cause some problems using MSOffice 2000 even using MS Office 2002 (XP).

    Also the default margins in MSWord is 1 1/4 inches while in WordPerfect they are 1 inch. this also can change the paging.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
