Word 5 for DOS

By stergios_nik ·
Hello,

I have a problem with a file originally written in Word 5 for DOS.

The user used Greek characters.

Now when I open it in Word 2000 I get something like this.

--------
?????????? ??????? ?? ?? ? ? ??? ?? ???? ??????? ??? ?? ?? ?????? ?? ?? ?? ???? ??? ??????? ??? ??? ???? ???????????, ?? ?? ????? ?? ?? ???? ???????? ?????????? ? ? ??? ?? ??? ?? ?? ??????? ??? ??? ??? ??? ?????????? ?? ???????? ? ?????????? ??? (Hammer & Champy, 1993, Davenport, 1993). ???' ??? ???, ?? ??????? ???? ?? ?? ??? ???? ??? ??????? ?? ? ?? ??????? ??? ? ? ????? ??? ??????? ?? ???? ? ? ? ? ??€ (Oliner & Wascher, 1995, Madrick, 1998, Sichel, 1997, Roach, 1996, 1998, Challenge, 1995),
---------------

As you can see the latin characters are retained but the Greek Ones are a mess.

Is there any font that I can install on my Win98 PC in order to access those greek characters or shall I consider them lost?

Thanks in advance.

try to open the document on a w2k pc that has that (or more) languages installed.
I am able to open documents of other languages because of I selected most languages during the w2k installation.

Hello,
I used to have the same problem. You need to be sure that all converters are installed in your office 2000. By default you will not be able to open older doc files like Word 5 -6 or wordperfect 5.
Go to control panel and add in your Office 2K / Converters and filters the needed text converters. Hope this helps.
Regards.
