I've not done such a conversion in a long time (I've long since converted all WP files to Word). However, typically everything imports, but occasionally you'll have some formatting that isn't right. Generally, I figure if the text is there, you can fix the formatting. :) If there is something you're not sure how to do (WP and Word look at achieving the same things in different ways), I can probably at least tell you what to look for in the help. Knowing what to search for is often the biggest hurdle, since terminology varies. Iain
