Have you tried opening these WP docs using Word?

Word will convert the document formatting, but I don't know if it has the capability to convert the macros?
You may want to read this paper

"It is important to realize that attempting to simply convert WordPerfect macros will provide little benefit to your organization.

Let's clarify an important point - the 'conversion' of WordPerfect macros to Microsoft Word is NOT possible."

And, this MS one

"This document describes the methodology, approach, and requirements for converting macros developed for various versions of WordPerfect to Visual Basic® for Applications in Microsoft® Word. "

And, one for Word 2000
