I have a book in Wordstar and a new computer with Word (and XP).  When the book was published, the publisher got the files converted to something they could use, but I didn't get a copy of the disks.  

When I've run the converters provided by MS, the text does fine, but the footnotes are lost--and they're about 40% of the book in volume.  

I have just tried to install my (registered) 6.0 Wordstar into my computer, but the #2 disk is faulty.  Can I get a replacement copy of that?

Has anyone successfully converted Wordstar files with footnotes?

Thanks,

jbb

Thanks. I'll give it a shot.



Please let me know the cost of this program that will convert a Wordstar file to a Microsoft Word file

Try some of the free or evaluation versions of programs listed on the Conversion FAQ page http://www.wordstar.org/wordstar/pages/convert_faq.htm.

I can't help you there because I don't own WS6. Have you considered upgrading to WS7d? There is an Indian company listed on the WordStar Users Group site (see below my signature) as well as on Mike's site where you can buy that version. I mention it because I use Star Exchange, which comes with it, to do my conversions when I have to and ....

Yes. I get the footnotes.
