Appendix C. Converters and Filters > Text Converters - Pg. 463

Converters and Filters C Previous versions of Word and many other applications do not fully support all of the features available in Word 2000. When Word opens or saves a document as something other than a .doc file, it uses text converters to change the file format to be more compatible with other applications. If a document contains graphics, Word uses graphic filters to open and save images. Other Office applications use the same text converters and graphic filters as Word. All of these filters and converters are installed in the following locations: · Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\TextConv · Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Grphflt Text Converters Table C-1 lists all of the text formats that are native to Word 2000 and need no conversion.
