 Convert Word97 DOTs into Word6 DOTs
Hi Hans,

Word 97/2000 format template (.DOT) files aren't useable in
earlier versions and I've not seen a tool for converting VBA
to WordBasic.  You might want to check with Bill Coan at
http://www.wordmacros.com  and other Word macro gurus who
hang about over in the Word newsgroups. <g>  Might want
to try

or

You have to do it line by line.

Depending on what the VBA does, you may not be able to convert all
statements back to WB.

See http://www.standards.com/users/kaikow/ for lists of Word VBA and
WordBasic books and some comments on converting from WB to VBA which may
imply the greater difficulty of moving from VBA to WB.
