Make a copy of it

Right click on the copy of it

rename - change the .lwp to .txt or possibly .doc

open with word, wordpad or notepad.

may well be 'corrupted, but you should still be able to read most of it UNLESS it is full of frames and pictures

have you tried opening it with notepad, just to see what it is?

If you are really desperate, I have a copy iof lotus smartsuite that came free on a PC mag, and that I have been using on our PC at work for 3 years.

I can make a copy and post it to you if you send me an SAE.

Click on the envelope next to my name to email me.

Many thanks to all of you for your help.
This is quite an important letter/estimate and I'll ask to have the thing sent through the post.
I've tried every computation to open it.
Again my thanks DM.
