Word is Word and will read all old versions of Word docs...

Just try it...

OwenLotts is correct. The version of Word that has been included in MSWorks has always been the full version of the sotware. Any later version of Word can read the files created by earlier versions.

HI, I HAVE ALREADY TRIED TO READ OLD FLOPPIES BUT KEEP GETTING THIS----
COMMAND CANNOT BE PEFORMED BECAUSE A DIALOG BOX IS OPEN CLICK OK THEN CLOSE DIALOG box TO CONTINUE.

THE PROBLEM IS THERE ARE NO OTHER BOXES OPEN! asrobs.

THE ONLY WAY I FOUND TO OPEN OLD FLOPPIES MADE WITH OFFICE WAS TO OPEN WITH WORKS APPLICATIONS.!!
