To convert between the MASS-11 file format and Microsoft Word, use either
of the following methods.
Method 1: Save in a Compatible Format
MASS-11 versions 8.5 and 8.6 for VAX or PC can import and export the
following formats, which all Word products can read and write:
• Microsoft Rich Text Format (RTF)
• WordPerfect 5.x
Versions of MASS-11 earlier than version 8.5 support import and export of
RFT-DCA format only.
According to MicroSystems Engineering Technical Support, these MASS-11
import and export options retain only baseline formatting. They retain
text, margins, and character attributes, but do not retain such advanced
layout features as tables or special characters.
Method 2: Obtain a Third-Party Conversion Solution
Several third-party converter vendors and conversion bureaus also support
conversion between MASS-11 and formats that Word can read and write
(including native Word format). For more information about third-party
conversion solutions, please see the following article in the Microsoft
