I really need help! My computer is dying and I need to transfer some documents over to a newer one being loaned to me. They both have Win 98, but the older one has Works 5.0 and the newer one doesn't, of course. I have sent the wss and wps documents to the new computer via the internet, but they won't open. I get the "Open with..." box, but nothing I choose works. There must be a way to open older documents, but I don't know it.
The Works version I have is 5.0. The Excel version in the newer computer is 2000. Can anyone help? I have already browsed the Micorsoft site and they have nothing there that I can see.

You need to save the "wss" files (in Works) as .xls.

Try the "wps" files as .doc ; if that fails, try .rtf.
