I am trying to migrate some text documents from Apple works to AbiWord. So I converted the appleword docs in .rtf format and then opened it in Abiword and saved it as .sxw document. This worked only for one document.
For all other documents, when I try to save them in .sxw format, they keep getting saved as .tmp files which cannot be opened
Does anyone know why this is happening and how can I save my documents? Is there a better way to migrate ?

I'm assuming you mean OOo Writer and not abiword I can't offer any assistance on abiword, myself...
If you're just getting tmp files, that's a bit odd since you should get a disk I/O error. Another thing to dry would be the Document Converter. This is supposed to be a batch conversion utility that will translate a whole bunch of files at the same time. It's under File > Autopilot > Document Converter.
