thanks for the effort. 

a) did not make a difference
b) would mean a lot of rework. it is a book, and has many images (about 400)  laid out by SWP as follows:
\FRAME{fhFU}{4.5576in}{0.5855in}{0pt}{\Qcb{The Elements of an Open-LoopControl System}}{\Qlb{olp4111}}{4o.eps}{\special{language "ScientificWord";type "GRAPHIC";display "USEDEF";valid_file "F";width 4.5576in;height0.5855in;depth 0pt;original-width 7.4063in;original-height 0.8596in;cropleft"0";croptop "1";cropright "1";cropbottom "0";filename'4o.eps';file-properties "XNPEU";}}

b) would mean about 400 changes of the above. Is there no way of making the above work in PdfLatex or toautomate the change to (b)

Perhaps you could try:
a) in the preamble 
 \usepackage{epstopdf}        % this could be necessary now, this is to accept .eps with pdfLaTeX
b) where you want the picture
         \includegraphics[width=4.5576in]{4o.eps}       % better not to put both width and height
Could you try this and report the result.

Could you give an example of the call to a figure.
Are the eternal files for the pictures present in the document folder or do yo call them with a full path?
Also which engine do you use? (TeX, LaTeX,...)

     thanks a lot. i was able to import my SWP  document in to tex. It is compiling perfect,  
  the only problems is that the figure, pictures and diagrams are EMTPY. There is an EMPTY space and the Figure caption ONLY. 
  Please assist

 The MacKichan site has some pages on that, in particular
