I have several ClarisWorks documents (*.CWK) that I'd like to import into a more modern format like Microsoft Word or Open Office. It seems Star Office can apparently open cwk files, but the product is discontinued and cannot be downloaded any more. There has been a feature request to add a cwk importer to OpenOffice since 2002, so I doubt that OpenOffice will support cwk files any time soon.

Are there any utilities that can open a cwk file besides ClarisWorks itself?

MacText can convert ClarisWorks. I don't believe StarOffice ever could, despite what people say. I have documented my own work attempting to reverse engineer the .cwk format here.

I'll give it a try tonight. – Justin Dearing Dec 12 '11 at 18:37

LibreOffice will also do the job. - opens them perfectly.
