Word Perfect attachments.

  Youngjohn 18:26 01 Dec 2003

Most of my Email attachments arrive in MS Word format which is my word processor however, I sometimes receive attachments in 'Word Perfect' format. Is there a way of opening the latter without the necessity of installing the complete software?

Word should be able to open them.

You may need to download a Patch so you can open them It sounds like you have Word 95

Word 95 is a bit old. If you have a version of Office 97 or later you should add in the optional word converters from the office set up. However - from previous experience, the conversion of all but simple text and formatting is never quite satisfactory but at least you`ll be able to read them.
