Problem opening a word doc.

Can someone remind me how I read a word document that is showing as a series of

page break

page break

I believe that I need to convert it to my version Word 2000

The original is given as a WDB file and it says it open with microsoft word

I realise that this is straying from the forum intent but I am getting frustrated searching for the solution.

WDB is a Works Database document - you need to open it with Works.

Thanks Vog

I am still not able to open this doc.

It is definately described as a "WDB" file

But adds "This file opens with microsoft word"

Only it doesn't open for me. See earlier explanation of what I get

I downloaded the convertor and tried it.

Is this something to do with converting from a earlier version of word.

I have had this problem before but can not recall how I resolved it, doh.

I would also appreciate a little advice. I've got a similar problem to sattman. I have some wks files and downloaded the works converters but they still won't open in either word or excel. When I try to open them in excel, they are shown as works 2, but the still don't open, and word doesn't show works 2??

Apol to VOG

These are the programmes that I downloaded click here.

On checking they are definately "works" documents.

The convertor dont seem to work for me.
