    Help converting .sam to .doc

    I have several floppy disks saved in the old Ami Pro .sam format which I cannot open. Is there a way to convert these sam type docs so I can read/edit on Word or Libre or OpenOffice?

    If you or anyone you know has any previous version of MS Office, and they
    installed the additional converters that were available on the MS Office
    Update web site, these include a converter for Ami Pro 3.0. It will be
    stored in:

    c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\TextConv\ami332.cnv

    or wherever your Program Files folder is, if not on c:\

    This file will work with Word 2003. It will give a warning that opening an
    Ami Pro 3.0 file is a possible security risk, but then will open normally if
    you ask it to.

    The new version the converters, in ORK.exe on the MS Office Update web site
    no longer includes a converter for Ami Pro.
