Open Old Files in Other Programs

Lost an old program, new computer not have the correct software or you don’t own a copy of a program? Do you have files that you need to access?. Have been sent a document via email that you cannot open?

Try Zamzar, the Web-based file-conversion service. I've used it in the past when I needed to bring old documents into newer programs.

But what does it support Publisher, Word, Works, and lots lots more.

In fact, Zamzar can convert a wide range of formats, including Word (DOC & DOCX), OpenDocument (ODT), PDF, HTML, Rich Text Format (RTF), and more. (See Zamzar's Conversion Types page for a complete list.)


The service is ridiculously easy to use: Choose the file you want to convert, choose the desired format for the conversion, and then supply an e-mail address.


After the file is done uploading and Zamzar has completed the conversion, you'll receive an e-mail with a link for downloading the new file.

That's all there is to it! Best of all, Zamzar is free. Give it a try the next time you have an old file you're having trouble opening.
