    I just bought a new computer which has windows xp on it. My old computer
    is using windows 98, my question is this. On the windows 98 machine I was using microsoft works version 6.0 spread sheet. The new machine has Excel
    is there any way that I can convert the works files to excel files so that excel
    can read the files. Or am I better off putting works spreed sheet on the new machine


    Thanks Guys

    Welcome Gary.

    >> is there any way that I can convert the works files to excel files

    Yes. In Works, choose Save As from the File menu. Under "Save As Type", there should be various Excel options.

    >> am I better off putting works spreed sheet on the new machine

    It's up to you. Excel has very many more features than Works spreadsheet ; then again, Works also comes with word processor and database applications, which you may not have on your new PC. If it's "Works Suite", then it also has Word. You could have Works and Excel on the new one, if space isn't an issue.
