Convert .wdb to .xls?

  1. Someone sent me a .wdb file and I don't have Works.

    Have Office 2003.

    Can I convert the .wdb file to excel?

    If so, how?

    Thank you. J

    It doesn't work when you choose File-Open in Excel and try to open the file? I believe Excel can open some versions of WDB..

    Other than that, there are commercial WDB converter programs out there. Just google for "wdb convert".

    No, that doesn't work.

    I get "File format is not valid" message.

    Renamed the file ".xls" but that didn't work, either.

    This is a one time shot so I don't want to buy a new program.

    Tried to open it in "open office.2" but didn't work. Maybe I didn't do it correctly. Does anyone know whether Works and Open Office are compatible? If so, how would I do this?

    Thank you. J

    Find someone with Works and ask them to convert that thing to some compatible format?
