importing .doc files?

Post by jgold723 » 29 Feb 2016, 09:07

I can't seem to import .doc files? They are all greyed out and unavailable. .docx files appear to be available.

Please tell me there's a filter or work around for this, other than converting files to docx - -my client sends all files in .doc format.

QXP 2015 import docx, not doc-Files. This is discussed a few Times and Reasons are explained by Matthias Guenther – i think here in Forum or also in Facebook-Group.
