A database saved as an AppleWorks 6 document will run fine in AW6 under Leopard or Snow Leopard (though a Clarisworks 2 file won't). It's advisable to add the .cwk extension in Snow Leopard (possibly also in Leopard) as although AW itself will open them perfectly well without, double-clicking in the Finder will try to open them as 'Unix executable files' - adding the .cwk allows you to open them in AW from the Finder.
Many thanks Roger.
And forgive my ignorance, but what about things like iLife?
I have the following versions:
Will these versions all work with 10.5.x or will I need to start re-buying those too?
Sorry if I seem paranoid - cash is particularly tight just now and I don't want to get sucked into a costly upgrade spiral.
I have been able to open ClarisWorks 2 files in AppleWorks 6 & resave them. The problem is that AppleWorks 6.2.9 can't open all ClarisWorks 4 or earlier files, it gives an I/O error. For that reason I keep a copy of AppleWorks 6.2.4 to use when needed. I just make sure they are not both running at the same time.
