    You can try doing Insert/File instead of File/Open and see if that does it. Usually, though, if you get gibberish it doesn't. Can you possibly see if whoever created it can save it as something like an .rtf file? That would be one of your best bets.

    The only thing I can think of is that the document may have been created by a later version of Works than is supported by Word 97.
