Hi my windows 98 crashed and I got a friend to instal Windows 2000. I then reinstalled works 2000. When I open an old Excel or word file the file opens but the contents are gibberish mixed up with the various headings ect.

Can any body help?

Thanks
Terry

I don't think works can open word or excel files ... the suite version has word.

I suggest you install open office which will be able to open them.

Works spreadsheet uses a diff file format to that of excel, if you go to microsofts site you can dload a viewer, which enables people without excel to look at the file but not to edit it or create a new file.

As keewaa says, the works suite does come with word, but this has to be installed seperately (but won't help with your excel files, obv.)

Hope this helps.
