A .wps web-mail attachment won't open in my version of MS Word



I was sent a file of instructions/information for an upcoming weekend trip, attached to an e-mail. I downloaded the file, which I think is a Microsoft Works document (.wps), but the version of MS Word on my computer does not open it sensibly.

When I tried to install a program called Openfreely to help open the document, it would not install properly.


One possible approach: if a trusted friend here would u2u me their e-mail address--someone who could convert the file to .doc for me--I would be willing to send it to them.

I used to have a second computer on my desk with Open Office on it, which might have been able to solve the problem, but it is packed away now as a concession to married life.

If you get this:

http://www.computerhope.com/download/utility/wp6rtf.exe

It'll convert Works files, so that they can be opened in Word. :D
