Good afternoon,

Does anyone know if there is a downloadable converter that will take a WORD document (extension .wps) on a computer running win 98 and convert it into an excel or word document on a computer running xp and office xp (extension .xls)


i have just changed jobs to a company i used to work for and due to the economic climate have not updated their computer system, and i was hoping that there was a program that i can add to my computer to allow me to read .wps and .wks documents generated by an earlier version of word, mainly to convert and store them onto a cd.

is there anything i need to look for on the free download sites?

best regards
phil

I don't know of a program that would do this. It seems to me the Word program that you have should determine if you will be able to use Excel with it or not. I would suggest that you request that your thread be moved to the Business Applications forum. You'll probably get more responses.

.wps is not a Word file, its from MS Works.
Word should open it, but that depends on the version.

Easiest would be to open it in Works again and save as .rtf. If you have access to Works.

.wks files also are not from Word, they are Lotus spreadsheet format files and should open fine in Excel.
