a repost from Ken Wright to convert MS Works files :

Generally you would normally open the file in WORKS and then save it
down as a
file that Excel can read. .xlr is a native Excel format, or .txt,
..csv, dbaseIV
are all formats it can read. You can also find a converter here if
you don't
have WORKS.


Text from the website above:-

Microsoft does not provide an import Excel filter for Works-WKS files
later than
version 2. (for Works-WPD and Word they do). There is no standard way
to convert
a lot of Works-WKS files into the Excel format. You need to save each
file out
of Works manually into XLS which is a pain in the neck. Here comes our
MS Works
Spreadsheets to Excel Converter. It does not need a Works Installation
and you
can use the batch converting wizard (see right side).
a.. Completely integrated into Excel 97/2000/XP, no external program
b.. Imports MS Works Spreadsheet (*.WKS) 3.x ,4.x, 200x files
c.. Convenient, selfextracting and selfinstalling setup procedure
d.. Can be removed completely with standard deinstall procedure
e.. Works with Windows 9x, ME, NT 4, 2000, XP
f.. Our RL-File-Conversion-Wizard is part of the package
g.. Converts cell alignments, font styles, etc.
h.. Excel helper macros to make migration easier
i.. No need for a Works installation
j.. Free Updates: Our registered customers can download the latest
from our download area at any time

Two articles from Microsoft that deal with Works and the files it can

Works: Sharing Works Files with Other Programs
