Hi,

I have many old files from Windows 95B, and wish to convert them. Here are the versions of the products under Win95B.

MS Works 4.5a
MS Money 4.0a for 95
MS Excel 9.0.3821 SR-1
MS Word 9.0.3821 SR-1
Publisher Publisher 2000 (from Office 2000 developer)
Access Office 2000 (from Office 2000 developer)
Others ?? From Office 2000 developer

1. For MS Works, I simply want to open the file and save it in Word format, so that it can be used in OpenOffice
2. For MS Money, open the file and export it to QIF format
3. For Excel, Word, Publisher, Access files, open them, and save them in a format that can be opened in OpenOffice.

I have Windows XP Pro, so am looking to see what MS products I need to buy that runs on that.

What version of Works, Money and Office will run on an XP Pro (SP3), and be able to open/read the W95B files.

I am thinking that a Works Suite has Money also, an Office Suite or a similar product to my Office 2000 Deveoper.

Regards,

Peter

Yes to both questions. Search around here in the Office forum and you'll find what you seek.

Thanks, it did install okay, as you say. No doubt there is an Office 2000 Premium update/s for XP Pro SP3.

How do I tell what version of Office 2000 is running on the XP Pro SP3 ?

I see Microsoft still have an SP3 available for download.
