Do you mean WORD 97? There should be no problem opening these with Word 2002. If you are talking about WORKS files, they need to be saved in another format, such as a CSV file.

The files on the floppys are Works97 files ( wks extensions) I really need some help to get them to work in OfficeXP. When I open them from the floppy all I get is symbols and format labeling and a pop-up window "File conversion" widow...none of theselection seem to work for me!
