Preferred Solution: Covert claris works file into a Word file

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The spec for "Conversions Plus" sounds relevant:

assuming you have $70 to spare (NB: this is not an advert). And that there's no File > Save_As > *.doc/*.rtf option.

I have a group of files I created in Microsoft Works 3.0 ( word processing and spreadsheets.) I have the original files on Floppy Disc, Scan Disc, and on my Hard Drive. I have tried coverters, and the best results I have received are partial, or full text with symbols. Nothing with the original documents creation form and font style. I have been told that the only true way to see these files in their original form is to run the files through Works 3.0 with Windows 3.0 with MS DOS. ( before Windows had its own operating system. )
Is anyone out here running Microsoft Works 3.0, with Windows 3.0, on top of a MS DOS operating system. These files should open in their original form, and then are able to be save in DOC. format. All helps are Welcome!

I am using a computer with Windows XP Media Center and it came with Microsoft Works Word on it. After doing some editing and writing I saved my work and when I went back to it and tried to open it says I need to use a file converter which I said okay to. And then it came up with the following message and after acknowledging the message Word opens up a blank template as if to start a new file.

Works cannot open "C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Administrator\Desktop\Paid To wps". The file may be in use by another application, the file format may not be supported by any of the installed converters, or the file may be corrupt.

How do I uncorrupt this file. I opened it under a diffferent format and could see some of my file along with a lot of wing dings or whatevers. But I need to be able to open it in word as a wps file. All my other files open up without difficulty. Any help would really be appreciated.

Try copying it to your desktop and opening the copy. If it is, in fact, being used, the copy will not be.

A:can't open word file w/works prgm

Topic says open Word with Works.
Your post says open Works with Word.

Might want to clarify that, but...

If you have a newer Works program file (like from Windows 98), you can't open it with Word 97. As far as I know, you cannot open a Word file from Works--at least not easily.

If it's just text, try opening any of them using (under Accessories) Notepad for small files, or Wordpad for larger files.

I typed out a recipe that I wanted to include in my Recipe folder. I typed it out and saved it in MS Works. It came up as a Word file, but when I tried to open it. It could not open it--a window with the message "Word cannot start the converter for msword632" I typed another short sentence in MS Works, saved it, and the same thing happened. The titles I gave them came up in MSWord, with the same window and message. What's going on here? Do I have some kind of virus or bug? Any help will be appreciated. lilart
 

A:Word steals Works file, and can't open it!

The file type is probably associated with Word. Right-click the file and use Open With to open it with the program that created it. Or, start Works first and use the File menu to locate and open the file.

Having both Works and Word is redundant. You might want to decide which you want to keep and remove the other if you have no need for both. But both can live together if you open files through the programs instead of clicking them.

I've got some strange behavior going on with .doc files at the moment. Whenever I try to open a .doc file from Windows Explorer or a desktop shortcut, Word opens with the error message "Word experienced an error trying to open the file. Try these suggestions. * Check the file permissions for the document or drive. *Make sure there is sufficient free memory and disk space. *Open the file with the Text Recovery converter."

After clicking OK, the .doc file then opens in Word, apparently with no problems at all (I can edit, save, etc.). So basically the error message seems to be wrong, since the file does open properly.

I can open .doc files from within Word (File -> Open) with no error message.

The issue is more of an annoyance than anything else (since the file eventually opens up just fine), but I imagine it'll just become more irritating as time goes on. Any suggestions on how to resolve it? I've been poking around in the Folder Options -> File Types in Explorer without a clear sense of purpose.

I'm running MS Word 2003 SP3 on Windows XP Service Pack 3. If you need any further info, please let me know.

Thanks for your help!

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

I saw your post right after you made it but I did not post a reply because:
1) Real life got in the way
2) I'm not sure that I understand your issue.
I'm not picking at your English, but this is important:

Your post mentioned, "another file is opens with that".

I'm guessing that you meant:
...another file is opened with that
or
...another file opens with that

Either way, the word open is really important to the description of your problem.

Let's just talk about Word for now.

When you open a Word, one or more temporary files may be created. This is normal and desired; but those temp file(s) should not automatically open in Word.

Please try this:
Close all copies of Word.
Open Windows (file) Explorer.
Double click on an existing Word document.

How many windows do you have open for the Word program?
(Hopefully, just one.)

How many files do you have open in the Word program?
(Hopefully, just one.)

Are you seeing this file that bothers when you look at Word or when you look at Windows (file) Explorer?

I am working on a pc that has important wks files created in a very old Works program, I believe ver 4. There are about 70 files. I am trying to transfer these file to a new computer with MS Office installed. I have read on the internet that I can open the files one at the time with Excell and save as xls. Two problems with this approach (1) I would have to do this manually one at the time and (2) I tried this and the file will not open without and window asking me all sorts of technical questions I don't understand about the file. I believe the reason for this is because the Works files were created with version 4 (maybe older) and the Office version is much newer, I have both 2007 and 2010. I will include a snapshot of the window that occurs when I try to open with Excell just for your viewing however, I would prefer a software program that would simply convert the files. I found one who's reliability is in question and it must be purchased for 60 bucks. Needless to say I am not going to purchase any software that I will use only once to convert files that are important to someone else (not me). I would like to help the owner upgrade to Office 2007 or 2010. Excell will accomplish the tasks he was using Works for and do it better.
Please offer me suggestions and I thank you.

If you see that, the the document is most likely really in the Publisher format. I doubt that it got changed while in transit. Do those making this document use Microsoft Office or do they use something like OpenOffice or LibreOffice?

If you have Microsoft's Publisher application, you should be able to open the document and user File > Save as to convert it to a Word document format. However, you should be using the Portable Document Format (PDF) for info placed on the website.

Basically I have been asked to create a document template where other team

I am aware that Word can export the form results to a text file, but when I

If the end user is faced with 20 questions, but only 12 of the questions

I know that this should be possible with using a macro button to export the data, but that is where I need the help.

I recently installed Office 2007 on a new Vista 64 bit system. I was unable to install my previous version of WordPerfect Office 12. When using WP on my previous Windows XP system, I was able to go into the word processor, click open, go to the wp folder (where I kept all my documents) and do a search based on a particular word I was looking for. For example, I could type in the word "hebrew" in the files box and each document file that contained that word (not only in the file name but in the contents of the file) was listed. I could then preview the contents of each document file and open the one I wanted.

Does this feature work in Word 2007 under Vista 64? I have only been able to find a file name with the word I type, even though I know many other document files contain the word I type in the files box. This has been very frustrating because it means I have to preview every file to find the one I want rather than just the files with the typed word in its contents.

Thank you for your time in this matter.

This is one of the weirder things I've ever seen happening in MS-Word.
 
The file in question is a book manuscript that was created in Word 2007.  The individual who wrote the book happens to be blind, but is a friend of mine, and even she knew something was "off" without being able to see it.
 
She sent me a copy of the original .doc format file and also one in .docx format.   In both, the entire document has the text right justified, but, and here's the important part, Word is showing the document as left justified no matter where you place yourself in it.
 
If I do a select all, then hit the right justify button the entire document left justifies.
 
Since this manuscript will be submitted to a publisher it would be helpful if it were working as virtually every other MS-Word document works as far as justification goes.  Neither of us has ever encountered this before.
 
I figure that someone must have had this happen to them and probably knows what one must do to fix it.  Any and all assistance will be most appreciated.

I ran across a similar situation using Word '97 many moons ago. I had found and used a template which contained pre-formatted content that did not cooperate with the changes I wanted to make. This worked for me.
A word of caution as you probably already realize, you will lose all formatting of the original .doc / .docx so it may involve some work replicating the format of the original .doc / .docx.
Make sure your original .doc /.docx is saved

Open the original .doc / .docx
Open an instance of Windows Notepad
Copy/paste the text from the saved .doc / .docx into Windows Notepad.
Open a New blank Word Document
Copy/paste the text from Windows Notepad into the New Word Document
You should now have full control of your New Word Document
By saving the original, you can replicate the necessary changes (fonts, colors etc.) lost by copy / paste to Windows Notepad
 
Hope this helps

I am setting up a new computer with Windows 7 (from XP). I transferred some Word Perfect files to new computer prior to installing the Word Perfect 11 software. I changed one document to Word, and all of my WP documents changed. Now since I have WP installed, I would like to be able to open original WP documents in that program. I do not see a way to change the files back to WP. Although the files say "WPD File," they open in Word when I attempt to open them. I have tried to "Save As," but do not see the Word Perfect option. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!

The all of sudden change of color print of file folders, from black to blue is suspicious enough to think there's a possible virus or spyware, causing the transformation of normal black printed to blue print. 
Is there a way to correct the change of printed file color to blue? The changing started after updating a free word processor, at its website. After installing & using the program, my name files started turning blue.
Do Microsoft know the cause of this type of transformation?, It would help to cure it.

Is there a way to compress a Word 2010 file for insertion in another Word 2010 file as an icon that would open when double-clicked the same as is done with a Word file that's an attachment to an email?
 

A:Solved: Word file embedded as icon in another Word doc?

In word 2007 the steps are: Insert ribbon/Object button/Create from File tab/Browse for file and check Display as icon. Might be similar for 2010.

Because I do teaching for people who have both versions (2007 & 2010) of Word, I have to keep both on my computer. How do I get .doc and .docx to associate with Word 2010?

Because I work mostly in 2010, I want to default to opening with 2010 but I can't do it. When I do try to correct the association (through the Control Panel) it WON'T associate with 2010. I go to the winword.exe in the correct folder for 2010 and click on it but it just stays the same, still associated with winword.exe in the 2007 folder.

FileTypesManager is pretty good in cases like this one.

Download this free application, run it, look for docx. Hightlight it and press F2. In a new window delete anything in the User Choice field. Close that window and find Open coomand for docx in main Window. Make sure that command-line leads to Office14. Repeat for doc.

Windows 7 Professional Edition Service Pack 1 Build 7601
Microsoft Office 2010

My user has spent years building her Auto-Text feature within Word 2003 to the point it is now, but her company just bought her a new Windows 7 Pro machine with Office 2010 installed. She asked that I migrate her Auto-Text data to Word 2010. After researching on google.com I found that this data is stored in a Normal.dot file and this file needs to be migrated to (in Windows 7)
C:\Users\<User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Office.

Having done this, I now find the Normal.dot file I placed there in this location, as well as a new Normal.dot file that Word 2010 has created, but the two aren't merging. I see the new file has macros enabled... Does anyone have any ideas on how to merge these files into one file useable by Word 2010?

Thanks,
S~

A:Help with migrating a Word 2003 file to Word 2010

Normal.dot is the global template for Microsoft Word and is stored in different locations on the system based on the version of Windows and Word.

You dont want to merge them you want to backup the existing normal.dot file to something like normal.old.
Then replace the file in the correct location, which I cant research for you right now.

The bad thing about doing things like this is that if normal.dot gets corrupted, all the work put in to this is lost!

I am having a huge problem converting a "rescued" file. I typed a document up in Word and saved it. (I know it was saved because I attached it to an email.) However, when I went back to open it up again, it was gone. It took me forever to actually find it on my computer, but it was in notepad format and a bunch of symbols and titled a rescued document. Even when I paste it to word, it is still all symbols. Is there any way to get back my original? Even if I can just see the words and have to retype it?

How do I stop Word 2007 from opening my 2003 and 97 version files? I'm sure there is a way, but typical of all programs put out today 2007 wants to take over the world. I want to stop it (at least on my computer). I have 2007 because of documents from school, but I certainly don't want to use it on a regular basis.

Many thanks in advance for answers.

When I try to open an old WORD 2.2 file in MS WORD 2007, I am blocked from doing so -- I'm told I'll have to make some registry changes. The suggested changes, though, do not match what I see in my VISTA registry. Can someone help me with this problem?
