Can't Convert Works 4.5 to Word

Word doesn't recognise the Works format very well, that is why when opened the contents of the file appear as gibberish. What needs to be done is to open the documents in the original program that created them (Works 4.5a) and then save them in a format that Word 2003 will recognise. When saving the files, start with Word 6.0/95 from the Files of Type drop down list. I don't have Works 4.5 installed on this system so you may have to try a couple of the file types, but be carefull as some only save the files in RTF format and you may loose some of the documents formatting. Make sure that you have a back up copy of the files before you begin to save the Works files in a differnt format.
Hope this helps.
