I can not find a filter that will xlate microsoft works 7.0 word processor files (.wps). Works also has a spreadsheet (.xls) which works just fine. Works came with my computer in 2003. Anyone be able to do this?????

There is no filter in the current version. Save them as Word files (.doc) and then you can open them with OOo. I believe one is the works. :D

I have the same problem as bcravy. The file's text appears as blocks and many symbols. I have tried open office, wordperfect, abiword, wordpad, notepad and microsoft office word viewer 2003. I also downloaded and installed "Works Converter for Import/Export of Works Word Processor (.wps) Documents (Wp2krtf.exe)". Any other advice?

Yes, there is a Works word processor (.wps) import filter for OpenOffice.org, but it's not in the mainstream/vanilla/Sun version.

Works also has a spreadsheet (.xls) which works just fine


That's an Excel format.

Sorry for the trouble. I realized I have works on another computer and and can open all the files successfully. Thanks for all your help.
