Convert a CWK file

I have windows xp and have been emailed a .CWK file which i know is a claris works file extension, none of my programs open it as it is a mac format file.  Is there any free conversion tools i have seen some but they all cost in excess of $30 which would be a waste as i only need this one file converted.

It looks like this shareware program will do what you want it to do:

ok ive just had a little look, and apparently:


.cwk will basically only open in Appleworks for Windows

which seems a bit odd becuase i thought appleworks was similar to excel? (as in spreadsheets)

what i was originally trying to find was a program called aportis doc converter i think thats the program which will convert anything into .pdf which will allow all content, pictures spreadsheets, word docs all into one. ill keep looking at post if i find anything.

By putting "aportis doc converter" in a google search, I found a few sites mentioning this program, and finally, there was a link to www.aportis.com, but when you go there you find a page saying that the aportis web page is for sale...
