What work around can I do if I were to convert documents from MS Works to Ms Office? When I received MS Works documents form my MS office, my computer doesn't recognize the MS Works documents.

Hello

That is not problem . Also you don’t need to  have converting  program for making  MS Works into MS Office documents. If you want to make MS Works be like MS Office you just need to resave them. It’s very simple to do. Just need to open your existing document. Than go at file tab. After that click on Open  button. After that you click on Works 6.0 or 7.0 in the menu Files of type. If you can’t see it just click on + button. After that in File name dialog box you can enter the name of file you want to change and click Open. After that just click on save as. In that dialog box you will find Save as type list. Just chose the format you want and that is all. So now you can have MS Works like Office document.

Hope i helped to you

Opening or converting your Microsoft Works files to Microsoft Office is easy but it only works on versions after Microsoft Works 4.x. Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Office 2010 cannot open spreadsheets in the Works 4.x/2000 format (*.wks). If your spreadsheet files were created using Microsoft Works 6.0 or higher, you don’t need to convert them into Office Excel files.

Microsoft Office Excel 2010 can open files in the Works 6.0 – 9.0 format (*.xlr). If your Microsoft Works files were created using Microsoft Works 6.0, open Microsoft Office Excel or Microsoft Office Word then click “File” and then “Open.” In the list of file types or the “Files of type” dropdown list, select “All Files (*.*).”

Navigate to the location of the Microsoft Works files and select the Works file you want to open and then click “Open.” When saving the file, save it in the newer Office format “Excel Workbook (.xlsx)” or “Word Document (.docx).”
