Convert word templates to ACT templates

Hi, currently all my templates are in word form (apt) but I have just installed a new server with Microsoft office 2010 which is not compatible with act 2009 which I run. Is  it possible to convert the word templates so they can be used by the Act word processor (i,e conver to tpl files).

 

Thanks

Re: Convert word templates to ACT templates

There is not automated way to do it, but if you have lots of content in the templates, you should be able to at least cut and paste from the Word format into a blank Act! formatted file.

 

You will then have to replace the old merge fields with the corrected format for Act! processor templates....

 

Or - get an addon that will allow you to connect your version of Act! with Office 2010...
