Word perfedct. . .

My aunt sent me a recipe and it's in .wpd format. I have the full MS Office Premium and naturally I can't open a Word Perfect file. Is there an add on or free viewer out there somewhere?

Thx

Re: Wordperfect word conversion

Wayne,

An earlier post by Edward (http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6122-0.html?forumID=44&threadID=37223&messageID=435824) points the way to Microsofts freely downloadable Office Converter Pack, that contains a Wordperfect filter. But it might be in the resource kit section of your Office CD also.

If all else fails, ask your aunt to resend it in another format, like rtf or even simply txt.

I hope the recipe is worth the trouble. Why not publish it here if you like it?

Here is the simple but delicious recipe:

CHICKEN & SPAGHETTI

From the Kitchen of: Helen (McCoy) Costin (1961)

Cook hen until tender; cool and bone. Make sauce from broth of chicken, 1 can Mushroom Soup, 1 small can of pimentos, and 1 lb. grated Velveeta Cheese.

Cook one package of ready-cut spaghetti and drain.
Then layer: Chicken, spaghetti, & sauce in casserole
dish.

Finish the top with more grated cheese. Bake in a
350 degree oven until brown. Serve with French bread, tossed salad, green beans, coffee & pie or cake.
