✔ Best Answer
.wps = Created with Microsoft Works.

upload them to here and choose a document format that your Mac can deal with. It's a free service: http://www.zamzar.com/

Alternatively, install the free OpenOffice for Mac, I think it can open Microsoft Works documents: http://www.openoffice.org/porting/mac/

Alternative 2: Ask your friend to save the documents as a "plain text" file or an RTF (Rich Text Format) file - - your Mac can open one or both of those types.

Thanks! I was able to get the Apache Open Office, but my computer couldn't open it either, but before that I had her copy & paste and send the minutes to me that way. I made my 'corrections/input', put it into PDF and sent it back to her. Wondering why Apache O.F wouldn't work.... I have Mountain Lion on my iMac..... Any suggestions?
