    I'm trying to view some Works WKS files that I created several years ago. I was using it to log my vehicle maintenance history. However, my Works application became corrupt and I cannot find the OEM install CD.

    I now have Office XP. I've tried different converters to view the files with Excel, but nothing works. Some of the text is legible. But they mostly contain odd shapes and misplaced letters--nothing very discernable. I've tried Microsoft's website. Their help is "open the file with Works, and save it as a different file type". Ha! I don't have Works anymore.

    Is this a lost cause? Any ideas?
