    I'm having some trouble to view a "wps" - Microsoft Works file, I've installed the plugin in Word but the document will not show correctly. Even tryed to convert it to a PDF document but still no luck.. Any ideas.. Any good converters..

    (not sure which version of works this document is created in)

    Works is not really all that compatable with Word, even though they are made by the same company (go figure). While you will usually get the general formatting intact, that has been about the best that I have accomplished so far. I just make the changes manually within Word to get it back to where it needs to be.

    If you find something that works better, I'd be interested in knowing about it.

    I'm pretty sure OpenOfficecan open a works file. You can have OOo co-exist with M$ Office without any problems.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
