I am getting the message "file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action" create an association with it in my computer. This is an insurance quote and the number attached to it is: 11.05.01 wks. Could someone tell me how I can open it? I have Windows 98 SE operating system. Am I missing a file that I need or can I access it some other way. Would appreciate any help. Y'all have been a great help to me in the past.

Try to "save as" 11.05.01 wks..txt see if it will open as a text file. then if you must try something else do this , click & hilight
the file... then right click & go to "save as"... when that window opens go to notepad & click it.... or wordpad.

You should be able to open it now..... oh by the way... the box should have a check in it so it will always open as a text or doc files.



Savvy :)

Hope that helped

If assigning a .txt (text) extension does not work read on.
The .wks extension is a Microsoft works 2000 spread sheet file designation and it can be opened in MS office 97 if Office 97 has the file converter. If you have Office 2000 you should be able to associate the .wks to it since Office 2000 supports .wks. Office 97 and 2000 normal file designation for excel is .xls. If not the converters will also work.
If you have office 97 without the converters go Here
to aquire them.
