[pdftex] Unicode to tex

Dear Sir/Madam:

Recently, I have developed a way to make typing a TeX style document 
relatively easy. I did that by using the facility Autocorrect in Microsoft 
This allows me to write the command for say an integral with both upper and 
lower limit by simply typing (in WORD) int; or alpha by typing a2 etc.
When a file is completed I use the Save As command in WORD. But the options 
I get do not allow me to use this file in PCTeX to produce a dvi or pdf 
The only version I see in the Save As dialog box, that preserves the 
appearance of the file is Unicode, and lists the file as xxx.txt.
However, when I try to use this file on PCTeX I just get a file all of whose 
entries are nulled and the program cannot use it to produce dvi or pdf..
Is there a solution to this problem? It seems there must be.
Thank you
P.J. Dhrymes.
