Alright, my family just got a new computer, with all the bakery fresh software available. The problem is, Microsoft Word isn't backwards compatible, so the older files will not open. Some of these were files that they needed for work, so they're very important. I've searched online, and the only converters I can find are wps to doc, the exact opposite of what I actually need. Do these converters work the other way too? Or can someone point me in the direction of what I need? All help appreciated, thanks!

A .wps file is created by Microsoft Works, not by MS Word. You will need to open the .wps file and then save it as a Word document. The link below is to MS's Works to Word converter:
