My mother has over 3,400 Apple Works (AW) docs and as she upgrades to Lion, she's going to switch to Office. Can I batch convert or automate this process? she has the "latest" version of Apple Works.


Here are my issues:


- Found set of AW files includes layout files that we're not going to convert.

- AW won't save in the same folder where I opened it. I have to navigate to a folder on every "save as."


I' m considering trying to write some macro to perform all the steps on each file if I can resolve some of the issues - especially the issue of choosing a folder to save the new file...


I'm sure there are other issues, but I thought I'd ask - has anyone done this successfully? Any suggestions? Any idea where I could look?
