For the output file name, you can modify any or all of the path, name, and extension. By default, the filter alters only the file extension. For RTF output, the extension is normally .rtf. For multi-step processing, it is .dcl for the first step and .rtf for the last step. The target file is written to the same folder as the source file, usually the current folder. Any intermediate files (typically binary DCL files, .dcb) are written to the current folder, and are automatically deleted after conversion is complete.
• Extension without file name gives the output file the extension specified instead of the original extension. (In some cases, the new extension is added on instead of replacing the previous one; this happens if the previous extension was not the one used to indicate the input format, such as .mif, and if the file naming rules for the system permit multiple extensions.)
