Will MSWorks Docs work in MSOffice 2000

By Joe Donahue ·
I have MS Office 2000 installed on my computer, when someone sends me an email with a document created in MS Works with the extension .wps I can't seem to convert it to a Word doc. I've installed Word2000 with the 'Run All from My Computer' option and I can easily open and convert Word Perfect and Word Star docs. I should also add that I have Office XP on another computer that I use and have no problems opening .wps files. What can I do to fix this problem?

Historically, Works has not done a very good job of "playing with others"...

It sounds to me, however that either you didn't install all the conversion filters on Word (it doesn't include Works 3.0 and 4.0 filters in a typical install) or they have become corrupted on that machine.

to install or remove individual components:

If you originally installed Word from a network file server or from a shared folder, run that copy of the Setup program.

1 Close all programs.
2 Click the Windows Start button, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
3 Double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon .
4 If you installed Word by using the Office Setup program, click Microsoft Office on the Install/Uninstall tab, and then click Add/Remove.

If you installed Word individually, click Word on the Install/Uninstall tab, and then click Add/Remove.

5 Pick the conversion filters text filters for Works...

Hoe this helps....good luck!
