Hi folks

I sent an attachment to a friend containing a Works Word processor, ext. .wps. It wont open in Office (Im pretty certain its Office, not sure which version)

I suggested to her that it would open in Wordpad or Notepad but that wouldnt work either.

So thinking it might be her programmes or pc fault, I tried opening it myself in Wordpad and Notepad and I just got a page of garbage. I re saved it with .doc extension but that wont open in Wordpad and Notepad either.

Finally I just pasted the text of it into an email for her!

Whats the story with compatibility here? I thought works .wps would open in MS Word (Office version). Actually Im almost 100% certain I sent it to other people and it opened.

thanks

Why not save it in rich text format and resend it
