Wpd file is very old, mostly these are not use in now these days as we have Microsoft word professional software to make our documents and other things as wpd file is a word processing software which was owned by the core with long histories on personal systems but mostly they are not useable in now days so we can the wpd file into the word document
To convert you have to select the file and open in word document no go to file and click the save button and select the word document from save as type drop-down list below and then click save.
And this will solve your problem

WPD files or files that are using the “.wpd” extension name are files created from WordPerfect which was developed by Satellite Systems International in 1980. It is historically the most popular file format used during those times which can still be opened by nearly all versions of Microsoft Office Word.

Unfortunately, the development of WordPerfect for Mac and DOS were discontinued in 1997 though the Windows version is still continuously being developed by Corel, its current owner. WordPerfect was the top selling word processing application throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. For your information, WordPerfect has already been acquired twice.

The first company who bought it was Novell and that was in 1994. The second company and currently the last company who purchased it was Corel and that happened in 1996, 2 years after it was acquired by Novell. Corel continued the development of WordPerfect including the WPD file format until this day.

.wpd is a Corel WordPerfect extension and WPD denoting word perfect document. Corel WordPerfect is outdated hence to open the extension you will need to rename your file extension from .wdp to .doc To rename it just right click on the file>rename and give it a name and add the extension .doc for example important.doc After doing that Microsoft word should be able to open the document.
 
Alternatively
1. Open Microsoft word-click file-open
2. In the file type at the bottom of the dialog box, select the drop down menu and change it to all files (*-*)
3. Browse the file and click ok
4. Word will automatically convert and open it
