Hi, and thanks for using JustAnswer.

A XLR file is a Works spreadsheet, which you may open up by using the free Excel Viewer program. In order to download the same, please use the following link:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=1cd6acf9-ce06-4e1c-8dcf-f33f669dbc3a&displaylang=en

Please click on the 'Download' button, then run and install it following the on-screen directions, and you should be able to open up the XLR file using the same thereafter.

Still can not read a file, after downloading program. Have another suggestion?. the files were written on an XP 98 computer and now I have office 2010
Expert:  Barun replied 6 years ago.
Oh, I see. In that case, please download a Works to Excel Converter program using the following link:
http://www.rl-software.com/converter/wks-wdb-to-excel.htm

Run the program and use it to convert the XLR file to an Excel-supported format, and let me know if you are able to open the converted file all right.

No, just download the trial version at the bottom of the webpage accordingly.

When I tried to install the program I got this message. This converter can not work with Excel 2007 because Excel conferter interface does not work anymore with Excel 2007. Should I purchas a 2010? Would that solve the problem?
Expert:  Barun replied 6 years ago.
I think you stated earlier that you already had Office 2010 installed?

My mistake. Sorry . My computer is new, 2010 but I did put in a 2007 office that I had
Expert:  Barun replied 6 years ago.
I see, no problem; that tool will not work with Excel 2007. Now, please download another MS Works Converter tool using the following link:
http://download.cnet.com/MS-Works-Converter/3000-2248_4-10424236.html

Let me know if you are able to use this program to convert the XLR file to an Excel format, and open it up thereafter.

Couldn't figure out which program you wanted me to down load. Lot of spyware and stuff I have already tried. Need another suggestion.
Expert:  Barun replied 6 years ago.
Do you see a 'MS Works Converter 2.20' listing in the webpage? If so, click on the green 'Download Now' button just below it, and then wait for a download window to come up. Do not click on anything in the webpage.
