[Solved] Opening Corel WPD files

Postby gyaltnnh » Sun Apr 11, 2021 11:45 pm

Searched support for this, found nothing newer than 2018, at which time the Apache OpenOffice wiki said that "current versions will open WPD files". Since I was running 4.1.5 (2017), I updated to 4.1.9. Still can't open WPD files. How do I do so?

My suggestion would be to try LibreOffice. It has better compatibility with a number of formats that are not supported by OpenOffice.
If that doesn't work, or if you want to try an alternative first, then you could try using http://www.zamzar.com to convert the WPD file(s) to OpenDocument format.
OpenOffice 4.1.7, LibreOffice on Windows 7 Pro, Ultimate & Windows 10 Home (2004)
