I cannot SAVE AS or EXPORT a Works database file with a .wdb file extension to be a WORD document file.  I need to be able to open and print in WORD OR possibly a PDF format.

Can you help.

Hi,

Another thought ... have you tried to export into csv or txt format yet?

If that works, your worksDB might contain invalid characters, invalid formulas, or a formatting option that is not accepted by msword!


Best regards, Raisor

Thanks for the help!!  I kept the website in my FAVORITES for future reference.  What I found out is that you cannot export or SAVE AS a WORKS database file without losing some of the format.  I had to do it via using our FULL version of Adobe Acrobat and Distiller.  What a hassle.....

Thanks though.
