History

Through version 4.5a, Works used a monolithic program architecture whereby the Works Word Processor and Spreadsheet/Database documents ran in windows of the same program interface, similar to AppleWorks. This resulted in a small memory and disk footprint, which enabled it to run on slower computers with requirements as low as 6 MB of RAM and 12 MB free disk space[1] Works 2000 (Version 5.0) switched to a modular architecture which opens each document as a separate instance and uses the print engine from Internet Explorer. "Works Suite" versions bundled personal productivity and entertainment software such as Microsoft Money, Encarta, Streets & Trips and Digital Image. These "Works Suite" versions also bundled a copy of Microsoft Word, although sometimes a version older than the most recent one supplied in the latest Microsoft Office suite. (Works Suite 2000 and 2001 included Word 2000. Works Suite 2002 through 2006 have included Word 2002). As of 2008, "Works Suite" versions have been discontinued, only the standalone Works software is available. A word processor (also more formally known as a document preparation system) is a computer application used for the production (including composition, editing, formatting, and possibly printing) of any sort of viewable or printed material. ...

Features

Microsoft Works has built-in compatibility for the now deprecated Microsoft Office document formats (DOC and XLS), including, but not limited to, the ability of the Works Word Processor to open Microsoft Word documents and the ability of the Works Spreadsheet to open Microsoft Excel workbooks. Newer versions include task panes but do not include significantly updated features. Notably, even in the latest version (Version 9.0), the Windows 95-era icons and toolbars have not been updated to stay consistent with modern application software. Version 9.0 which offers Windows Vista compatibility, is available in two editions, an advertisement-free paid version, available in retail and OEM versions and an ad-supported free version which is available only to OEMs for preinstalling on new computers.[2] Microsoft Word is Microsofts flagship word processing software. ...

While Works' proprietary native .WKS (spreadsheet), .WDB (database) and .WPS (word processor) file formats limit its utility for larger organizations, the simplicity and ease of integrating database/spreadsheet data into word processor documents (e.g., mail merge) allow it to still remain an option for some small and home-based business owners. Version 4.5a is particularly noted in this respect. The database, while a "flat file", i.e. non-relational, allows the novice user to perform complex transformations through formulas (which use standard algebraic syntax and can be self-referential) and user-defined reports which can be copied as text to the clipboard. Proprietary software is software with restrictions on copying and modifying as enforced by the proprietor. ... This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ... A simple diagram depicting conversion of a CSV-format flat file database table into a relational database table. ... A relational database is a database that conforms to the relational model, and refers to a databases data and schema (the databases structure of how that data is arranged). ...


By installing the 2007 Office System Compatibility Pack, the Works Word Processor and Spreadsheet can import and export Office Open XML document formats, although they are converted rather than being operated upon natively. The Works Calendar can store appointments, integrates with the Windows Address Book and can remind users of birthdays and anniversaries. It supports importing and exporting iCalendar (.ICS) files. It does not however support subscribing to iCalendar files or publishing them online via WebDAV. Up to version 8, using the Works Task Launcher, the calendar and contacts from Windows Address Book could be synchronized with portable devices. In Works 9.0, the sync capability has been removed.[3] 2007 Microsoft Office system, also known as Microsoft Office 2007, is Microsofts next release of its productivity suite, slated to replace Microsoft Office 2003. ...

Due to its low cost ($40 retail, $10 OEMs) companies frequently pre-install Works on their consumer grade machines. Microsoft provides a converter for Office programs to open and save Works 6.0-9.0 documents.[4].

Third party compatibility

A general C++ library, which in 2006 was still being developed and has been experimentally published as wps_test[5], works for reading many different Microsoft Works versions. It was later published as 'libwps'[6]. As of December 2007, no mainstream versions of OpenOffice.org, AbiWord, or KWord have included it for various reasons. OpenOffice.org has not included it because of restrictions with the Joint Copyright Assignment (JCA)[7], but OpenOffice.org variants such as OxygenOffice, Go-OOo.org, NeoOffice, and Ubuntu have included libwps. Also, libwps provides a command line converter. C++ (pronounced ) is a general-purpose programming language. ... Year 2006 (MMVI) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Sponsored Edition

For various years, Microsoft considered the idea to have an ad-supported version of Works. On August 2007, said that it would start piloting a version called Works SE (which stands for Sponsored Edition), but the company gave few details on where or how the product would be offered.[citation needed] Microsoft has subsequently started offering Works SE in a limited set of countries with little marketing to back it up, due to it being primarly a pilot project as of April 2008.
