How do I open a .wdb file if I only have Office 2003?

Hello,

I have a very short query and is urgent. I have Office 2003 Pro installed on my System. But received some files in mail with .wdb extension which I guess is MS Works file, right? I don?t have MS Works installed on my system. So can anyone please tell me how can I launch this file on my computer? Is there any associated application in Office 2003 or Windows ?

I?m not sure whether it will work but you should try out opening those files directly in MS Excel and see if it opens. As I said I?m not sure about it. Secondly what you can do is search for any computer having MS Works installed. You can open these files in Works and then Save As text, excel, csv, dBase, etc. which can be easily accessed on your system.

Thank you very much for the help Oldmans but I already tried opening them in excel and it dint opened. Also none of my colleagues have MS Works in their systems. So your second suggestion also cannot help. Any other idea please?

There is a trick using which you can use Word and use the Works Database file as a mail merge data source. To do so you will need to make use of Directory as your mail document and merge the data into a Word table. The completed merge could then be copy/pasted into Excel. That?s it. See if it is helpful for you.
