I just upgraded to 10.7.3 and now all my Apple Works files are unreadable.  How can I convert them to Pages or MS Word?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3), I just converted to 10.7.3 now all

    You will have to have access to AppleWorks 6 in Snow Leopard or earlier. You can copy the contents of draw documents, paste them into an AppleWorks word processing document in object mode (click the arrow in the tool panel), save the WP document & then open it in Pages. You can copy & paste from AppleWorks to Pages but you would have to do it object by object or it will be one big uneditable object. Yvan Koenig wrote an AppleScript that can automate this process. You'll find it on his iDisk in the For_iWork > iWork '09 folder. Click on the file named AWdraw2iWork.zip then click on the Download button.
