    Need to convert a file created in works suite 2002 database to a word file that will open with microsoft office 2003.Its a customer list and hate to put the outdated works 2002 on new computer just for 1 file.

    Can you still open the file in Works on the old PC?

    If so, open it, Save As and under format select dBase IV

    Excel should open it, then you can save it as a normal file of type Excel.
