    My new computer has Windows Vista Home Premium, and my old computer had
    Windows Office XP . I copied some Word files and folders from XP Office to a
    CD. When I installed the files and folders in Vista, they show up as Wordpad
    documents in Microsoft Works Word Processor. I want to convert the copied
    files from Works Word to Office Word 07, so that I might use them in the
    Office format. How do I accomplish this?

  2. Do you have Word 2007 installed? If not, you will not be able to display the
    files if you change them to this new format. If you have Word 2007
    installed, it will convert these files to the new format.

    I did install Word 07, Ronnie, and so was able to convert the files to the
    new format.

    Thanks very much for taking the time to answer my post.
