    I have both WPS and Publisher files that I cannot open and read within either Word or Publisher 2007 (within Office 2007). How can I read and use them? I don't have the Works or Publisher software anymore that I used to create them. If you have experienced success dealing with this particular challenge, please let me know how. Thank you so much.

    You should try LibreOffice. I believe this package will be able to open these files for you.

    I think LibreOffice is the smart solution.
    And is the direction I've recently gone.
    But MS does offer 2 converters for WPS and I've used them in the past with MS Ofice 2000.
