    ..."open it in doc.." ?

    Can you explain, do you want to open it in Microsoft Word?

    I don't know of a program called "doc"..

    Rather than cutting at another new member (having a bad day, Kiwi?), .cwk files, originally from ClarisWorks, sometimes also come from AppleWorks users. Alas, all that I have found indicates that you will need a Macintosh (or at least some type of Apple) running that software to read the .cwk file. Perhaps you can later save it as a .pdf file or just cut and paste into MS Word for your .doc file.

    Sorry, wasn't meant to be "cutting", I was "confused".

    Not used to Apple software I guess.

    Hi to all -
    Thanks for the thought on the pdf file - didn't even occur to me. Hey and the reply on the doc - I should have been more clear - wanted to take a .cwk file (Appleworks) and convert to a .doc file (Microsoft word).
    Thanks again and Happy Holidays!!

    I'll try the pdf route ....

    Beth Ann :)

    Ah well, Kiwi, thanks for the clarification. Personally, I don't care much for Apple software, not because it is bad, but because of cross-platform hassles like these. May as well go with the monster "Micro"soft (what irony!) despite the buggy stuff they tend to turn out.
    And good luck, Beth Ann!
