I have many older step books such as found in the PC Study Bible Professional Reference Library. Wordsearch 9 would build those in to word search but when I tried it didn't work so I can't get credit for those books. I talked to the Wordsearch Guy and he said they stopped supporting step books over a year ago.  I have the step books on my laptop and a report of all my STEP book on my computer.  I have other older programs such as Quickverse and PC Study Bible but are unable to convert the STEP books because they are no longer supported,  This is very frustrating.  Attached is a list of STEP books found on my computer.  4505.STEP Books Found.docx

Probably not the solution you are looking for, but E-Sword has a step reader built into it. It is a free program and you could at least use your books.

Thanks Nord but I was mainly looking for Logos Credit so I don't have to repurchase these books in Logos that I already own.

Can't help with Logos Credit (if the books are not part of your WordSearch license, then Logos didn't acquire the rights to provide you access), but I seem to remember there once was a tool called STEP2RTF (google for it - I couldn't find it on my PC) which will make RTF documents from your STEPs, RTF being a former Word document format. This means you can simply open them in Word and save as DOCX in Word's current format, then build as PBs. For the monographs this will be it, for the commentaries you may want to invest a bit more work and include milestones so they work as Logos-bought resources would do. Seems like a bit of work, but then your list resembles quite an investment.
