Help converting Microsoft Works 3.0 files to modern format.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I cannot get the files to open with the latest OpenOffice or TextEdit. I've been doing some research into how to convert them and came across a product called MacLinkPlus from Data Viz, but I cannot find it on there site and assume that it may have been discontinued. My forum searches here have yielded no results. Hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction.

Thanks much!

Yes, MLP was discontinued years ago (like a decade?). I used to use it.

So since MLP is not available anymore I think your best bet is to try a 2-step process: first convert it to an early version of M$ Office (on an old XP installation), then convert that version to a recent one. But you may have simply waited too long...
