Thank you RoryOF. That worked for this file. Nevertheless, is there a way to open a .wps file using OpenOffice?

Currently this option isn't directly available.
If you would like to see it included, you can submit a request via the bug tracker at http://openoffice.apache.org/bug-tracking.html
Alternately you can test your coding skills by writing & implementing a routine to do this with the current source code. For more information check http://openoffice.apache.org/get-involved.html

At the moment, the closest available is to submit the file to Zamzar and get them to translate it to a format that OpenOffice currently supports (as you have already done)
OpenOffice 4.1.7 and LibreOffice 6.0.6.2 on Windows 7 Pro & Ultimate
