          As far as I know, you can't. You would have to reproduce the steps
          manually within Fireworks (if that is possible) and then save those
          steps as a Custom Command.

            Actions are using Photoshop built-in filters and other features. It is
            obvious that the list of such a features is different for PS and FW; as a
            result, many PS actions simply cannot be reproduced in FW. Some of the
            actions still can, but I'm afraid you'll have to open them in PS, see what
            they do and try to figure out similar steps in FW. Once you finished, you
            may save your steps as FW script, thus doing some sort of "manual"
            translation between two different languages.

              Thnks, Jim & Ilya

              I was afraid I must do manually. I do think Adobe should create a "hybrid" program as they are the proud owners of Fireworks and photoshop.

              Anyways, going to the neighboors to check the .atn file
