How do I read a .wps file.
This may sound obvious but my old version of Office 2000 will not open it in Word, says its not supported
and I need to install something from the CD.
OK but the CD is damaged and I cant do this.
Is there another program I can use to open it with or any other suggestions please.

Thanks Joe R,
I have downloaded and installed it but if I navigate to G:my received files it shows no files there, all the files show in Word but it wont open the one in question.

If I type in the file name it says I need a converter
to display the file and prompts for the Office 2000 Premium disk to install it but this is the one that is damaged so seem to be back to square one.
