    My daughter saved her school project in Wordperfect, but when she went to retrieve it, a screen came up saying "Unknown file format." The icon for Wordperfect appears beside the filename, and it also has the proper ".wpd" extension, so we can't understand why we keep getting this message. Apparently she was doing something with images at the time she saved it, and so the program might have become "confused", tho' I don't know how that could have happened. We have tried opening the file from IE, Wordpad, and Notepad. Nothing worked. Any ideas out there on how we could bring up this file? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Durring the time she was copying images from the website and/or text, she copied some links along with it. When she tried to open the saved file, she couldn't because the file couldn't find the program associated with the link.
    I had a coworker that had the same problem and I couldn't open the file on her computer, but as soon as I made a copy of the file and opened it on my computer, without doing anything to the file, it opened just fine on my computer. Try using another computer.
