I have microsoft works 2002 at home with no printer. I need to print something out Monday at work, but I have a really old version of Word on my computer...do you think I will be able to view the works file??

You can try to save your file as a RTF (Rich Text Format) file. Whatever version of word you use at work should be able to handle it if you do this.

Another thing to try is to save the file as a Word file. However, you have to know what version of Word you use at work.

As a last resort, save it as a text (*.txt) file, and then reformat it in Word.
