Overview

Our Instant Online File Conversion Service is a unique and very cost-effective facility for PC (Windows) users to convert document, spreadsheet, graphics or data base files between different software formats, including converting from older (Dos-based) word processors and spreadsheets to something modern such as MS Word, Excel, WordPerfect, PDF, etc. with text and most formatting intact. In addition, the service can extract text from unknown or corrupted files as much as possible (as a last resort option). No need to subscribe or buy any software. You only pay as you go for the files you convert. Specially useful for occasionally converting a few files. Very quick. The converted files are on your PC in a couple of minutes. Very easy to use ... the process is almost entirely automatic. Very cost-effective compared to purchasing software or rekeying data. Multiple files in one operation! No need to convert them a file at a time. Very large selection of file formats, including many older word processors. Converts text and most formatting in your documents, so little or no touching up is needed. Usable with any version of Windows 98 or higher (including 8.1 and Windows server versions) Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

How it works

1. To use this unique conversion service and have your files converted in a couple of minutes, CLICK HERE. 2. When the browser asks you if you wish to Open or Save, select Open, then let the browser install and run the dialog box. A window like the one shown on the right will appear in the upper right corner of your screen. Once this window appears, you may close your browser. 3. In general, the conversion server automatically detects the format of the files to be converted. However, some older file formats cannot be autodetermined, in which case you should specify the source file type. Also, if you'd like to convert to something other than MS Office (Word or Excel), select the destination file type. 4. Open Windows Explorer or My Computer, and drag the files to be converted into the dialog box. A running total of the conversion cost will be displayed. 5. Enter your credit card information and click Convert. Your files will be uploaded to the ACI Conversion Server, and in a couple of minutes the converted files will be downloaded and placed in your My Documents folder. It's all automatic -- as simple as that! Please ensure that the conversion you submit is between supported file formats. There is no refund for conversions which are unsuccessful because the file format is not supported.

Pricing and Refunds

The charge is $1 per file plus $1 per 50K of data, subject to an order minumum of $15. The exact charge is displayed before you upload your files. If you would like to email us your files rather than use the online service, please add $25 for manual processing. If your files do not convert because of a problem with our server or software, we will reconvert and email them to you, or issue you a prompt refund. However, there is no refund due if the problem lies in the source files themselves (e.g., corrupted files, broken linkages to other files, etc.), or if the specified conversion is not between supported file types.

Graphics files

You can convert from any of the graphics file types in the From group to any in the To group. Common file name extensions are also shown:
When converting graphics, the source file format may simply be specified as "Graphic". If you do not select any destination format, files are converted to the Microsoft Office preferred format (PNG).

Last Resort Text Recovery

If you have files that cannot be converted any other way (e.g., unknown/unsupported file types, or corrupted files), the conversion service can extract whatever text is possible from them, and salvage it into text files. This works for any kind of file, not just the file types listed above. To use this option, select  "Unknown for Text Recovery" as the source file type. The destination format option is not available in this case, since the output is always a text file. Please note that under this option, the conversion service looks for anything in the source file that looks like text, extracts it, and puts it into the output file. So all text content will be extracted from the source file (unless it is stored in an encrypted or non-ASCII form). However, there may also be "garbage" and irrelevant text interspersed with the actual text content. In some cases, text that was "deleted" may resurface. Further, the extracted text may not necessarily be in the correct sequence. So you may have to substantially edit and touch up the converted file. However, this is still a useful last-resort option.

Other Considerations

What if an upload/download is interrupted?

If this happens, you are fully protected: Your original files are never altered. Your credit card is not charged until your files have been successfully and completely uploaded. So if an upload is interrupted, you may just upload once again. When downloading converted files, a link to retry is placed on your desktop. This link is removed only when the download is successful. So if a download is interrupted, you may click this link at any later time (up to one month) to download your files again. If there is any other problem related to your upload, download or conversion, please contact us and we will take care of it.

Security and Confidentiality

All data transfer between your computer and the conversion service is encrypted. This includes your files as well as credit card information and transaction details. Security is not compromised. We will be glad to sign and execute any non-disclosure or confidentiality agreements you may require.

What Does Not Convert

Spreadsheets containing hotlinks to external files may not always convert. Documents that link to external graphics (i.e., don't embed the graphics) convert, but the graphics will not be included. If converting to a file format that does not embed graphics (e.g., HTML), graphics will not be converted. Password-protected files generally cannot be converted. Please ensure that the correct document or data files are uploaded for conversion. In most cases, the three-letter filename extension of the file being uploaded indicates the type of file. Common errors to avoid are: Uploading a link to a file (.LNK) rather than the file. Not extracting an attachment file, and uploading an email (.EML) instead. Uploading a program file (.EXE) rather than the document. Although you're welcome to try any conversion to see if it works, there is no refund for conversions which are unsuccessful because incorrect files were submitted.

Graphics files

You can convert from any of the graphics file types in the From group to any in the To group. Common file name extensions are also shown:
When converting graphics, the source file format may simply be specified as "Graphic". If you do not select any destination format, files are converted to the Microsoft Office preferred format (PNG).

Last Resort Text Recovery

If you have files that cannot be converted any other way (e.g., unknown/unsupported file types, or corrupted files), the conversion service can extract whatever text is possible from them, and salvage it into text files. This works for any kind of file, not just the file types listed above. To use this option, select  "Unknown for Text Recovery" as the source file type. The destination format option is not available in this case, since the output is always a text file. Please note that under this option, the conversion service looks for anything in the source file that looks like text, extracts it, and puts it into the output file. So all text content will be extracted from the source file (unless it is stored in an encrypted or non-ASCII form). However, there may also be "garbage" and irrelevant text interspersed with the actual text content. In some cases, text that was "deleted" may resurface. Further, the extracted text may not necessarily be in the correct sequence. So you may have to substantially edit and touch up the converted file. However, this is still a useful last-resort option.

Other Considerations

What if an upload/download is interrupted?

If this happens, you are fully protected: Your original files are never altered. Your credit card is not charged until your files have been successfully and completely uploaded. So if an upload is interrupted, you may just upload once again. When downloading converted files, a link to retry is placed on your desktop. This link is removed only when the download is successful. So if a download is interrupted, you may click this link at any later time (up to one month) to download your files again. If there is any other problem related to your upload, download or conversion, please contact us and we will take care of it.

Security and Confidentiality

All data transfer between your computer and the conversion service is encrypted. This includes your files as well as credit card information and transaction details. Security is not compromised. We will be glad to sign and execute any non-disclosure or confidentiality agreements you may require.

What Does Not Convert

Spreadsheets containing hotlinks to external files may not always convert. Documents that link to external graphics (i.e., don't embed the graphics) convert, but the graphics will not be included. If converting to a file format that does not embed graphics (e.g., HTML), graphics will not be converted. Password-protected files generally cannot be converted. Please ensure that the correct document or data files are uploaded for conversion. In most cases, the three-letter filename extension of the file being uploaded indicates the type of file. Common errors to avoid are: Uploading a link to a file (.LNK) rather than the file. Not extracting an attachment file, and uploading an email (.EML) instead. Uploading a program file (.EXE) rather than the document. Although you're welcome to try any conversion to see if it works, there is no refund for conversions which are unsuccessful because incorrect files were submitted.
