Help!

I need to find someone who still has MS Works on his/her computer and is willing to convert a mailing list for me to word or excel.

I promised to do a favor for my VFW club and discovered that I deleted Works and dumped the program. Nothing seems to load the old WDB file type.

George, this site has a free trial download that apparently does what you are looking to do. Maybe give that a try.

Thanks, but it doesn't work

The file I have uses extension WDB and the conversion is for Works worksheets.

But thanks for trying.

Alan Lowell to the rescue!

Thanks to our friend Alan, I was able to import the VFW mailing list from a corrupted Work file to an "Act" database.

On behalf of Post 697, Thanks Alan!
