DescriptionThe WPS file format is very similar to the DOC format, it too is a text document but it is created with Microsoft Works Word Processor; and does not include advanced formatting options and macros that a Word document may contain. Most versions of Microsoft Word can open a WPS file, as well as Microsoft Publisher. However this format has been discontinued since 2006 and replaced with the standard MS Word DOC format.
Technical DetailsThe file format WPS is used by Microsoft Works Word Processor files. These files contain word processing documents created by the Microsoft Works software suite. WPS files contain richly formatted text as well as images, clipart and tables. A C++ library exists, called libwps which allows reading and writing of WPS documents, this library allows applications such as OxygenOffice and NeoOffice to open and edit WPS files.
