I have a MS Works database that I have been using for years and containing thousands of entries. I recently got a new computer and found that W7 does not include MS Works. Is there any way to use Open Office with my Works Database? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Although I am not completely illiterate, I am self taught and may need a little hand holding to accomplish this, if it is, indeed, possible.

Thanks in advance for any help.

.wdb is not supported in OOo. Can you export the file as .dbf which is.

I don't know. I will try. If I can do that, will it become usable in OOo? I really hate to buy the MS Works from MS since they have not supported it for a couple of years. If all else fails, I will do that because I have an unbelievable amount of time and effort in creating that DB.

Thank you for looking at this.
