    I have one .wdb document that I need to convert, but I do not have MS Works any more...If someone would be kind enough to convert it to an excel or MS Access file, I would be extremely grateful. It would take ages to type up...

    This contains phone numbers and addresses, so I do not really want to put it up for grabs. I will however PM a link it to someone (if anyone) who offers to convert this for me.

    Thanks in advance (I hope)

    i think open office reads that format. it reads everything i've thrown at it, and saves it to a format i like. i've thrown excell spreadsheets at it and msword and wordperfect. i just recently openeded and edited an old wordstar file from 15 years ago that i found on an old 1.44 floppy i used on a pre-pentium 286 machine (had a heck of a time finding someone with a floppy drive to copy it for me onto a flash drive)

    i like open office!

    This should do what you want. I saw .wdb on the file format list.

    It depends upon the version of Works that the .wdb was saved in, but I have Works 4.5 (98) installed. If it's not newer than that, I can offer assistance if you still need it, otherwise probably not.

    Do you know what version of Works it was done in?

    Thank you very much, but I found a friend who has done it for me...I asked him weeks ago, and he said he did not have works, then phoned me again today to tell me that he found it.
