My mom has a pile of old wordstar files that need to get converted into word. when you open one of these files with word, you get the option of picking the encoding. the closest thing is US-ASCII and, for the most part works fine. what i want is a simple little program/macro that goes to a specific directory, reads in the files and saves them to a sub-directory called converted in word format. i can provide a sample of the wordstar file. it can be a macro/VBA from within word, no problem, or a stand alone VB app if you're bored. i know, this is painfully simple but if you need some beer money, how easy is this!
an installable piece of VBA code or macro or a stand alone VB/Java/whatever app which accomplishes the above.
