I can't open my spreadsheets - the splash screen appears for a split second then disappears. When I right-click/open with, File Advisor tells me I have no program to open this .wks file although the file's Properties says it opens with OpenOffice.org Calc. I've just installed the latest version of OO and am baffled and would really appreciate some help/advice!
TIA[/img]

Is this .wks file a Microsoft Works file?

And what makes you believe that this program should open each and every shit of computing history?

OOo can't open MS Works files. However Libreoffice can http://www.libreoffice.org/

Thank you, Thomasjk, for your civilised and helpful reply. What a contrast from the incomprehensible reply above yours. Rolling Eyes
