When I receive attachments with the suffix .doc I cannot open them.
I don't use MS Word but my Word Perfect should convert but doesn't.
Any tips anyone?

Word viewer click here

Alternatively you would need to associate the .doc file type with WordPerfect. Unless you need to edit the documents, I would go with the viewer.

There is probably a simple solution, but in the meantime can you open them in Wordpad then transfer them to Word Perfect in a .RTF file or something?

I would right-click on any *.doc file, choose Open With, and then associate doc files with WordPad.

You could also try doing the same to associate them with WordPerfect.

Otherwise, install Open Office freeware and use that for *.DOC files.

I also use WordPerfect, but rely on WordPad or Open Office when editing *.doc files.
