Appleworks data file moved to new MacMini turns up as keynote file. Pages won't open. It is an index for early and current sermon files some from the 1970's

Hello, if this file was a AppleWorks' database, none version of iWorks will accept to open it:-~ But normally, LibreOffice will try to open it in spreadsheet: one record by row and one field by column, it is far from perfect but it tries to retrieve the main data.

Notes:

  • if the current version of LibreOffice 5.0 does not open this file, you may have more luck with the pre-release version http://www.libreoffice.org/download/l... (which corrects at least one problem which can cause some files to be unreadable with previous versions)

  • if you still have problem with LibreOffice 5.1 and if this file does not contain confidential data, ...,
    I may interested to see this file ( you can find my email address in http://www.loria.fr/~alonso/ )
