    I have just changed my old system that I was quite happy with after a powercut and computer failing to restart.

    The old System was XP and this replacement machine is Vista Home Premium.

    The only MS Office Disc I had is from the old one and have loaded it, ( Office 2000 Premium)

    The files I have from the old machine on stick have in the main transfered fine and are now viewed in Doc form on this vista unit.

    But and this is the problem I need help with at present.
    Some files appear as WPS and are unable to read. they are in a sort of Binary code.

    I have tried opening the files and saving as Rich Text etc etc but still read in mixed up code type. on this vista.

    the files are as one can guess the important ones "prof & Loss Rtns" "accounts" etc etc.

    Help please.
