Hi, I think you're confusing Microsoft Word and Microsoft Works, two
distinct products. AbiWord supports importing of Word files, but it
doesn't support Works files. I don't know the limitations of the trial
version you mention, but I wonder if you could reinstall the word
processor portion to access your old documents. If not, maybe someone
you know has access to that program and can convert the documents to
another format (I'd suggest RTF if you're interested in editing those
documents again)?
