I'd be happy to help. I found some information that you might find useful regarding wps files; http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fileext.... When you double click on the wps file you should get a dialog box that asks if you want to open wps file using a program on your computer, and you should please choose Microsoft Word. I did that and was able to open the file. Hope this helps and have a great day!
