WPD Files

Can someone tell me how I can read a .wpd file sent on an email. I only have Word and Works.
Occasionally, I am able to capture the 'picture' of the file with quick view but am unable to save it to a word file.

Could be several things click here but most likely a WordPerfect document. These should open in Word. Try Shift+right click, select Open With and select Word.

Yes, thank you, I am fairly sure it is Word perfect but I wondered if Office would, somehow, convert it to a readable word file. I tried your suggestion but did not get the 'open with'. Perhapa it is because I am using 98?

You have to hold down the Shift key and right click to get Open With. You will have to detach the file and save it somewhere before doing this.

Tried your suggestion thanks, still could not get the 'open with'. However as instructed I saved the file and then clicked on it.(In Explorer) This gave me the 'Click the prog you wish to open....' I then selected winword - success!
Many thanks for the help.
