In the present-day office information systems environment, the exchange of data between various word processing and data processing systems is routine. When carrying out such a data exchange, it is conventional to convert internal processor files to the various processor s into exchange data files. Then, when the data has been transferred to the destination processor, it is reconverted from an exchange file to internal files suitable for the particular processor involved. This destination processor may be a word processing system which saves these converted records in an internal buffer from which there is "WRITE" into a diskette memory when there is no more room for the next record in the processor buffer.
