Voll AppleWorks 6 has been obsoleted, and some years ago, the transition to other software was limited by the nature of this application. While more feature-richiWork still lacks some of the modules and the tight integration of AppleWorks. It can handle word processing, spreadsheets, databasesdrawing, painting, and presentations. Question marked as Solved User profile for user: I have about a ClarisWorks and AppleWorks documents, mostly word processing, some spreadsheets. I have older Macs with AppleWorks 6. Exporf is a multipurpose suite much like Microsoft Office.

To search the blog posts please use the box below Saturday, October 8, Exporting Data from Appleworks 6 to iWork and others At the October 5, , MacValley General meeting, I engaged in a conversation between two other members and myself.
One member said she wanted to move on to Lion, but felt fearful. She has a lot of documents in Appleworks format. I gave her several suggestions off the top of my head for converting various Appleworks documents into contemporary formats. I also helped another member Saturday the 2nd with a Classic program they want to run under Leopard All in all, MacValley has a lot of members who move slowly from past into present.
So sitting at my computers and logging onto the Intertubes, this is what I found after a day of research. First, if you want to move from Appleworks 6 to a modern format, you need conversion software. For 30 days, you can see if your old Appleworks word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations will convert into iWorks formats. From iWorks-well, Pages, Numbers and Keynote-you can then export to 3rd party formats.
Pages can export to these formats: PDF, Word. Numbers can export to these formats: PDF, Excel. Keynote can export to these formats: QuickTime movie. You can reach them at www. Well, what about the other formats? What about the Database format? What about the Painting and Drawing formats? So Painting is no problem. Appleworks Drawing, though, is another matter. It will open up these Appleworks drawings if you use version 4.
EazyDraw version 4. PowerPC processors are no longer supported beginning with EazyDraw version 4. EazyDraw 4.
You got that? Go to www. Go to the Web site and download the appropriate version for your needs. This covers both version 4. What About Databases? Select a layout that displays every field, select all, and copy the text to the clipboard. If you export the database data to an Appleworks spreadsheet and then move it to FileMaker, some odd characters might appear.
Open a new spreadsheet document. When pasting your text, be sure to plunk that text down a couple of rows, leaving room to enter the field heading titles in the first row of the spreadsheet.
No, your forms do not copy over from Appleworks. What about MacLinkPlus? DataViz does not sell MacLinkPlus anymore. I have MacLinkPlus. We can talk at the meeting. What if I have to run Appleworks? What are the extreme options? Your extreme options come down to this: You can keep Appleworks on a separate machine and link the two machines via Teleport. Teleport lets you use one keyboard and pointing device to control up to 3 other Macs. Go to the Abysssoft Web site for more information.
Tell us what you found out. Posted by Thomas Briant at PM.

All the components are integrated to provide a seamless suite that works in concert; for example, spreadsheet frames can be embedded in a word processing document, or formatted text into drawings, etc. The components are not derived from the contemporary Claris programs MacWrite and MacDraw but written from scratch and then redesigned to match other Claris programs after the purchase by Claris. It is the last version to support the 68k CPU architecture. The last version, AppleWorks 6, requires a PowerPC CPU and replaces the communications module with a presentation module in prior versions there was only rudimentary support for presentations through the other modules. For example, word processor documents can be saved in Microsoft Word format, and spreadsheet files can be saved in Microsoft Excel format.
