A wks to txt conversion basically relates to export of the text data from old Microsoft Works or Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheets (both program used .wks files), something that may be a little tricky to achieve nowadays. Your best bet in working or converting of old .wks files is to use some of the older versions of Excel/Works, because the newer versions no longer support old formats.

The tables with software actions are a good pointer for what a certain program does with various file types and often may give users a good hint how to perform certain file conversion, for example the above-mentioned wks to txt. However, it is not perfect and sometimes can show results which are not really usable because of how certain programs work with files and the possible conversion is thus actually not possible at all.
