PSS ID Number: Q100073 Article last modified on 10-22-1998

3.0 4.0


The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Works for the Macintosh, versions 3.0, 4.0

The following information refers to the conversion of MS-DOS files to Microsoft Works for the Macintosh. The MS-DOS converters for Works recognize the following extensions, but may not recognize the creator code for the file:

File Type Extension ————————–

Excel: XLS 1-2-3: WK1, WKS Multiplan SYLK: SLK PC Works 2.0: WPS, WKS, WDB RTF: RTF Word: DOC WordPerfect: WP, W50, W51

After the files have been translated using Apple File Exchange, it may be necessary to change the file extension so it will be read by Works. To do so:

  1. At the Finder level, select the filename.
  2. Add the appropriate extension preceded by a period. For example, FILENAME.DOC.

This should allow access to the file from within the Works 3.0 File Open dialog box.
