View Full Version : [ubuntu] .wks file conversion

August 23rd, 2010, 07:27 PM
hi all,

I have some files from the days of Works from a friend who needs them in office format. I volunteered for the job of helping her with the conversion assuming that open office would handle it with no problem.

The .wps documents were easy I just opened and re-saved but it appears that the .wks spreadsheet files can not be opened in office.

My question (finally) is: does anyone know of a way to allow open office to open .wks files? or a different program?

Alternatively I do have a copy of XP on a separate partition if someone knows how to do it on Windows.

Thanks in advance and sorry for the long post

Seems to be a solution of sorts. (http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=18362)
Then there is this from MS. (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/93698)
