Every now and then I need to access an old Appleworks file, and cannot. Is there a way of converting the files so that they can be used with other software thar runs with Lion 10.7?



Appleworks, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    Depends which type of file and how old.


    AppleWorks 6: WP openable by Pages, SS openable by Numbers, PR openable by Keynote. DR openable by (some versions of) Eazy-Draw. DB and PT openable only by AppleWorks 6.


    AppleWorks 5 and earlier: openable only by AppleWorks/ClarisWorks (same of newer version that the version creating the file).
