does anyone knows if there is a tool to batch convert 5000 Dos Word 6 .txt files to .doc?Should be fairly simple; create a batch file using "FOR" to step through your .txt files, rename to a common name, invoke Word with a macro to load and save the file, and then rename the common txt and doc files back to the original.

Early WinWord included macros to automatically convert all files of a type in a directory. I think variations of this were in WinWord 1 through 2003.
