Convert Works to Office 2010 in Windows 7?!?!

by musicrocks428 / September 29, 2012 11:49 AM PDT


I'm running Office 2010 on Windows 7, but I have a whole bunch of early Microsoft Works spreadsheets that I would really like to convert to the .xls format....

I'm at a loss because every conversion ability I found only goes up to Windows XP and every service pack available to do so is not compatable....

Do I need to purchase Office 2003 to convert?!

Thanks a bunch!

Tried these... and it still won't convert.

Thanks for your response. I tried these methods, and none of them worked... still getting garbled info when I open the file, even if it's been "converted" to .xls. I can see that the data is there, just crazy formatting.

Then we need Works.

Try the old method where you save it in Works as XLS or other formats.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
