What to Do When Word Doesn't Recognize the File Type You've Tried to Import

Make sure that you have installed the necessary graphics filter. The easiest way to do this is to choose Insert, Picture, From File to open the Insert Picture dialog box. Next check the list of filters in the Files of Type box. If the filter you need is not listed, run Setup again and install the filters you need.

If the file you need is not supplied by Microsoft, but you can still open it with another graphics program, you have two choices. First, after opening the file in a drawing program, select the graphic, copy it, and paste it into your Word document. The graphic becomes a Windows metafile (.wmf). If you later resave the Word document as a Web page, the graphic is resaved as a JPG.
