Can't open old Microsoft Works files (.wps) in new Microsoft Works 9
Posted on 2009-05-08
This is my dilemma. I have a customer that we just upgraded to a newer computer system. We transferred all of the data over and installed Microsoft works 9. Her system was getting upgraded from windows 98 to xp. She created everything in the older Microsoft Works (Were not to sure what version she had but I'm guessing it was version 4 or 5) The spreadsheets opened fine in Works 9 but all of the .wps wont open and comes up with The file may be in use by another application, the file format may not be supported by any of the installed converters, or the file may be corrupt. Now I dont think all 30 documents are corrupt, and as for the converters, if none work why is it opening the spreadsheets successfully? Ive already downloaded and installed some converters that said it would work but no changes. I wouldnt even care if it got open in Microsoft Word. Can anyone help? Thanks!
