I still have the original zip (compressed) file that contains these MORE files from several years ago. I tryed opening using the open command in MORE and that did not work.

Im confused as to whether the files you're using are now UNZIPPED or whether you're trying to open .zip files with MORE.

You must UNZIP files before you can use them. The OS X finder can unzip files, as can Stuffit Expander.

You response provided me with the clue that solved the puzzle. I copied the entire zip archive over to the Mac and unzipped them on the Mac. Then they worked!

Before I unzipped on the PC and then transfered the individual files to the Mac. This did not seem to work. Thanks for your successful efforts.

You have helped me return to the world of Mac. Years ago I started and operated a company Mac MBA Seminars that ran classes like MacAcademy did. Now I am the founder of an online University that offers MBA and doctoral degrees. See www.rushmore.edu/ .  Thanks again.

Ahhh yeah, if you unzip it on the PC itll strip the resource forks out of the file because the windows filesystems dont support them.

While most of my files are now available there are still some I can not open. How do I edit or add a resource fork to a file? Or is there another way of handling this problem.

You dont add a resource fork. Resource forks hold information that is vital to a file or application. Once it is gone, it's permanent. You can edit resource forks with Resedit, Resorcerer, etc, but you cant just add one because each files resource fork contains different data.

If you still cant open some files, their resource forks were stripped somewhere along the way, and you're outta luck.
