Hello, the best solution is probably to use Microsoft Works to export the database to a more common format: probably dBase ( to be checked ).

If you do not have access to Microsoft Works, you can try to open it with LibreOffice 4.3 ( see http://www.unixmen.com/install-libreo... ): normally a small filter have been added which tries to import the data in Calc, then if this works, you will have to recreate a database with these data.
