"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?
