W ABC was a program that converted files from Luxor ABC 80 and ABC 800 to PC compatible computers.

The program read and wrote ABC-floppies in the PC's diskette compartment. Besides pure file transfer some special file formats were converted. For example, ORD800-files (wordprocessing on ABC 800) could be translated to WordPerfect, Microsoft Word or Cicero files (Cicero was a word processor related to ORD800) while Kalkyl800-files were translated to something that could be read by Lotus 1-2-3 or the Microsoft Excel forerunner MultiPlan.

W ABC was written by Erik Lundh (Datorbokhandeln) and Jörn Rönnow.
