Post Old documents with WB3 extension

I have some old documents on my computer which I believe were created using Word Perfect which I can no longer read. The file extensions are wpd and wb3.

I am now using the OpenOffice programs. Is there any way that I can convert these files with either an openoffice or microsoft extension?

Download WPtoWord.exe and move it to any convenient directory. You may use it in two different ways: either drop one or more WPs file on the application (or a shortcut to it) or run the application and select a WP file when prompted. The application will create DOCX-format files with the same name as the original, but with a .DOCX extension added. Of course your original file will not be changed in any way. (If the original file has a .WPD extension, the converted output file will have only a .DOCX extension, not both.) The converted file will open in Word when the conversion is complete.

For you Wdb3 files which are spreadsheets, I believe Quattro Pro, I know Corel WordPerfect Office X4 will be able to open them, then you can save as XLS file to your drive, then be able to use Excel to open.

Download the trail version as it supposedly is fully functional for 30 days
