    Hi
    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.

    http://www.rl-software.com/indexjs.htm?/converter/wkscnvxls_e.htm

    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
    version
    from our download area at any time

    Two articles from Microsoft that deal with Works and the files it can
    open/save
    as.
