I have been using cheep-o “MS Works” and “Outlook Express” for years now for my word processing, household databases, and E-Mail. Recently I decided to spend the bucks and upgrade to “Office XP”. I would like to transfer my Works “Database” to “Excel” but it doesn’t recognize the format. (Go figure both “MS” products). Also “Outlook” will not recognize my “Outlook Express” address book. This is an awful lot of Data entry to re-enter (hunt and peck).

Am I missing something?


Is there a program available that will re-format these files for me?

Thanks Guys

If it is a database you should be using microsoft access not excel but access only comes with some version of MS office.

I dont know what version of outlook express you are using but try opening up your address book in it and going to file -> export and see what you can export it to. that might work better with outlook.

have you thought about open office for you office needs ?
