I have a treasure trove of old documents that I cannot access because the Army no longer uses IBM Lotus Form Filler. I found on the Google some instructions that mention "ConvertToPDF2.vbs.txt". Does anyone know if I can run this on a military computer and where I can find this .txt file? All help is greatly appreciated

There are .mil websites that still offer lotus for download (to personal computers). You could email the files to yourself and open them on a personal computer that you’ve installed it on. At that point, print to PDF and your files will be saved in the proper format, but will then be non-fillable.

Go to your printer and instead of selecting a specific printer select save to PDF.

If you have adobe pro, you can convert them to an editable .pdf format.
Also, as 1SG (Join to see) said, formflow should still be available to download so you can access those old files. I still use my old ones for shells, then copy/paste them into ESS. That way I don't have to sweat timing out and the random maintenance downtime that always seems to coincide with when I have evaluations to write or review.
