Convert Microsoft Word XML document template to Microsoft Works document.

Microsoft Word should still supports WPS format and can save documents to that. So this would be naturally first choice for this type of conversion. Some features exclusive to new version of Word (like formatting) may not be saved properly though.

For versions of Word prior 2003, you will need to install special plugin from Microsoft called Microsoft Works 6–9 File Converter that allows users to open, work and save Works documents. But first you would need to re-save your DOTX document to DOT/DOC because the older versions didn't use DOTX back then.

If you do not have access to Microsoft Word, you may want to try to get old Microsoft Works installation CDs. These were commonly bundled with new laptops and computers back then, so you may even have one at home. But again you will need DOT/DOC files not DOTX.

Sadly, open source word processors like LibreOffice Writer or OpenOffice.org Writer do not support saving to WPS format and can only open it.

The table with program actions contains information about what each program is capable of doing with their files. This may be a good pointer for further searches for certain file conversions and help you find the converter you are looking for if our search result is insufficient for you. However, it is far from perfect and may sometimes show results which are not really usable because of the nature of the software handles the files. So a conversion that appears as possible, just because of matched actions, may in fact not be possible.

A dotx file extension is used for a main open XML document template format of Microsoft Word. Templates are generally used to save predefined look and settings of documents for quick creation of documents that have same look. DOTX format is a successor to previously used DOT format. Some other word processors are also able to open dotx files, however they wont probably use most of the Microsoft Word specific formatting.


A wps file extension is associated with Microsoft Works and used for its default text document format. Works is a discontinued product, however many documents are still written in WPS format. Microsoft Word, and some other word processors like OpenOffice.org Writer or LibreOffice Writer are also able to open *.wps files.
