What is the .WPD File Extension?

.WPD File Extension Description:

The WPD file extension defines document files in the WordPerfect format. Files in the .wpd file extension are generated by the WordPerfect word processor by Corel. Alan Ashton and Bruce Bastian who formed the Word Perfect Corporation originally developed WordPerfect.

In the late 80's, WordPerfect was the ultimate standard in word processors used in a broad variety of operating systems and computers. It was used with Microsoft Windows, MS-DOS, Linux, Mac OS, and Apple, and there are versions as well for UNIX, Data General, VMS, AmigaOS, and OS/2, System/370 and NeXTSTEP.

Files in the .wpd file extension contain professional, high quality documents produced by WordPerfect. Documents with the .wpd file extension are created similar to the way raw HTML pages are produced. WordPerfect provides streaming tag architecture, to create document files that are saved in the .wpd file extension.

Texts that are interspersed with tags trigger on how data is treated until there is a corresponding closing tag. The setting is active from the start of the opening tag, where control is resumed. The word processor provides additional styles and libraries, to have increased flexibility and power to be able to format documents. Files in the .wpd file extension can be edited, formatted, and printed with the system for document preparation for office productivity.

Files in the .wpd file extension can be converted into Word files in the .doc file extension. All you have to do is start Microsoft Word, select 'Open' in the File Menu and when the dialog box opens, make sure that the file type list is set to 'All Files'. You can browse and select the WordPerfect file in the .wpd file extension and click the button for Open.

Microsoft Word will automatically convert the document with the .wpd file extension. You can do some formatting to polish the document and save the file. Open the dialog box for 'Save" and make sure that it is set to a word document file extension. It will be then saved to this new format.
