Editor: Little standalone program to convert MS Works Spreadsheet (wks) and database (WDB) files to Excel (xls) format. It's very slow (this is by intention). It does not support Batch conversion, but it does a very accurate and good conversion job. Due to the speed limitation it is absolutely not recommended if you have more than a few files to convert.
This version is the firstMicrosoft does not provide an import Excel filter for Works-WKS files later than version 2. (for Works-WPS and Word they do). There is no standard way to convert a lot of Works-WKS or WDB files into the Excel format! You need to save each file out of Works manually into XLS which is a pain in the neck.
Here comes our MS Works Spreadsheets to Excel Converter. It does not need a Works Installation and you can use our RL-File-Conversion-Wizard for batch conversion.
Features of the converter
Completely integrated into Excel 97/2000/XP/2003, no external program
Excel 2007 IS NOT SUPPORTED! There seems to be a serious bug in the Excel 2007 converter API.
Therefore we cannot create a integrated converter for Excel 2007!
