Works (wps) files

Postby clancysoda » Wed Apr 29, 2015 11:46 pm

All of my old Document files were saved on Microsoft Works as wps files. How can I open them in Writer? When I tried to, a pop up box wanted me to select a "filter" and I didn't see anything about Works files in the list. :?

This has been asked before, and, to the best of my recollection the solution was to use Zamzar to convert the documents.
Additionally, if I recall correctly, only the word processing documents converted... spreadsheets did not convert... or was it the other way around?
