How to open WordPerfect file in MS Office

We have some users we just hired who have WordPerfect files from their previous job. However, we only use MS Office 2003. Is there a way to open or convert the WordPerfect files so we can open them using MS Office?

Rename the WPD files with a DOC file extension.  Of course you may need to do a custom install of MSWord to add the conversion filter.

If Sunnycoder's method doesn't produce perfect results, try this technique:-

Download OpenOffice from www.openoffice.org and open the documents using this.  Then save them into Word format which should then be readable using MS Office.
