Default Microsoft Works to Microsoft Access

Good morning all,
I have a MS Works file that I would like to import into Access, but I keep getting a conversion error. Would anyone who has the ability to convert this file be willing to give me their e-mail address and I can e-mail you the file to convert it for me???

I appreciate any help anyone can give me.
Thanks!!!

Regards,
Laura

Depending on the version of works, you can convert your data to excel and then to access. Excel can open most of the works files depending on the version. Let me know using email.

I tried this too...but I got the same conversion errors. I'm not sure what version of Works this is, but I'm using Excel XP to try to open it in.

Works still exists? I thought that disappeared around the time of Win 3.1

I am a loud man with a very large hat. This means I am in charge
