Panic Stations - Microsoft Works

Can anyone help please?

A friend's completed an assigment using Microsoft Works, has then used Microsoft Word 2007 on a different machine and saved it as a Word document on that version. So, she couldn't open it at home.

I have - I think - successfully converted it back to a Works Word Processor document but my version of Works is 8.5 where hers is earlier. (I've got both lots of software on my PC).

Should it still open in her earlier version of Works Word Processor?

Many thanks

I am not sure that newer versions of Works are compatible with older versions. Try it and see. If not save it as rtf file and that should open but you may well lose the formatting.

Have a look at this - claims good Works compatibility. And it's free.
