My AppleWorks Database won't save the file as an ASCII (for export) Save As, only offers AppleWorks and Claris Works options. I know in the past ASCII was an option, but for some reason no longer?

 

I am running AW 6.2.9 on a PowerPC G5 running 10.5.8.

    Did you move the AppleWorks application from the AppleWorks 6 folder, separating it from its necessary folders - AppleWorks Essentials, Clippings & Starting Points? The AppleWorks 6 application & the above mentioned folders must be in a folder named AppleWorks 6 & this folder must be at the first level of the Applications folder. Not keeping all these "parts" together will break translators, spell check, updaters, etc.

    You're going to have to find the original disk & reinstall.
