OK, it looks like I'm going to have to upgrade my 17" iMac to 10.5.x. My question is this:

I have some very important database documents which I still use and edit regularly and which I created way back in ClarisWorks 2. My AppleWorks 6.2.9 works fine with these documents under my current OS 10.3.9 (though it insists on adding the .cwk suffix to the filename).

I gather that if I upgrade to OS-X 10.5 that AppleWorks will still work OK using Rosetta. BUT ... will it be able to cope with a database document originlly created in ClarisWorks 2? I've obviously re-saved these databases as AppleWorks documents, but the .cwk thing along with various confusing web reports are making me nervous.

Any thoughts or advice gratefully received.
