Recipient can't open a .wps doc (that's Works Word Processor).

Is this format so different from M/S Word that it can't be opened by Word?

I just started using .wps, so am not too interested in plowing thru the arcane
M/S knowledge base re. my question.

    Thank you for the responses.
    I run Vista, so the Converter wouldn't open to install as it only goes up to Win XP.

    I installed a MS Word Viewer which handles many file formats for docs.
    I sent it to my email recipient.
    here is the link for your future reference.
