    "Awful! Awful! Awful!"

    June 22, 2013   |   By lauren9847

    Version: MS Works Converter 2.20

    Pros

    None, it never worked

    Cons

    Never worked. AVG caught a threat & removed it before it loaded. The download also added several unwanted programs I didn't know about & wreaked havoc with pop-ups on my browsers.

    "Converts files but fills random cells with ads"

    March 18, 2011   |   By R_A_Dewey

    Version: MS Works Converter 2.20

    Pros

    Converts works files to excel files.

    Cons

    The program fills random cells with ads for purchase of the full version of the software. If you had important information in those cells, they are now gone. I was able to close the files without saving and as such able to avoid wiping any data.

    Summary

    Converts as advertised but forces you to buy the full version by destroying parts of your data.

    "Simply doesn't work, in OS-X or WIndows"

    March 10, 2011   |   By teetoncey

    Version: MS Works Converter 2.20

    Pros

    Well, it didn't burn my computer up....

    Cons

    Downloaded into iMac; then WinXP (via Parallel Desktop 6). Didn't work at all in iMac; WinXP said it couldn't load it, something about not with Excel 2007 (which I don't have; I have Office 2010). Waste o' time.

    Summary

    Waste of time.

    "Avoid this one."

    December 03, 2009   |   By Pat_thats_my_name

    Version: MS Works Converter 2.20

    Pros

    It works (and this entry needs minimum of ten characters. Pathetic)

    Cons

    It tries to be clever but ends up being stupid by putting rubbish is some converted cells.

    Summary

    Avoid it unless you have lots of time to undo the rubbished cells

    "Worked Beautifully"

    November 28, 2009   |   By cpwready2go

    Version: MS Works Converter 2.20

    Pros

    Works Beautifully. The program does exactly what I want it to do: Convert WDB files to Excel 2003 (version that I use).

    Cons

    None that I can find.

    Summary

    I received a file from a colleague in Works format. I use Excel 2003 and needed the file to be in that format. This tool did exactly what it said it would do. I didn't have the issues other reviewers reported since I don't use Excel 2007.

    "DOES NOT WORK WITH EXCEL 2007"

    October 14, 2009   |   By howardferns

    Version: MS Works Converter 2.20

    Pros

    None. Wasted my time trying to download it. No stars if possible.

    Cons

    You get a "Setup error" message which reads: "Could not find Excel 97/2000/XP/2003, installation stopped. Please note: this converter can not work with Excel 2007, because the Excel converter interface does not work any more in Excel 2007."

    Summary

    So why don't the publishers warn you of this in their review?
