    i've scoured around quite a bit for a way to view an image in a .wps file (Microsoft Works) which was emailed to me-no luck yet. i'm running windows 98SE. i have access to windows 2000 if needed. i can read the words, but the image is gobbledegook. :confused:

    I'm not really familiar with Works so let's get some additional information...

    What version of Works was the file created in?
    What program and version are you opening it in?

    i don't know what version of WORKS these guys are using. i've uploaded the files here and here. i'm running windows 98SE, no office programs. i have the powerpoint & excel viewers, adobe acrobat, and i tried installing the Works 6_0 converter. :p

    I don't know that you're going to be able to open it without some type of compatible program but I'll leave that for someone else.

    I can tell you that I downloaded the file. If I try to open it in Word or Notepad, I see the gobbledegook you referred to and the text. If I open it in Word (converted), it looks completely normal but I do not see that there's any image in the file. Attached is an image of the file.
