RE: MS Works to Excel database transfer
- Rhetorical perhaps?Anyway, as long as I've known MS Works it's never been compatible with MS Office products. Just another barrier that was either creted deliberately or without careful though - by MS.BTW - copy/paste doesn't always work -- depends on the versions of both and how complex the cell information is (formulas, formatting).

Subject: MS Works to Excel database transferFurther to my previous query:Having failed at finding a transfer mechanism, I loaded MSWorks to gain access to my databases. On a whim I tried copying the Works dbase and pasting into Excel. It worked!!!!!!Now why could I not find a download to do that? Why wouldn't Excel accept the database transfer in the first place?? (These are a hypothetical questions).Thanks for your suggestions.Alan Cassley
