File Extension WPD

What is a WordPerfect Document File?

The .wpd file extension pertains to a WordPerfect document, which can contain formatted forms, tables, text, and graphics. The .wpd file extension is a proprietary format of Corel, but the files saved in the WPD file extension can be exported to other file formats that are supported by Corel WordPerfect. WordPerfect is a word processor that functions the same as Microsoft Word, where in users can create text documents that can include graphics/ images/ pictures, which is saved in a file with the .wpd file extension.

File/s with the .wpd file extension has formatting features of Cascading Style Sheets and HTML, and this can be integrated in websites; this is referred to as the streaming code architecture. There is flexibility in formatting documents through the added styles and style libraries in WordPerfect. Saving a document created through WordPerfect will automatically have the .wpd file extension. File/s with the .wpd file extension can be converted to a Word Document, and this is done through Microsoft Word. Conversion is done simply by opening a file with the .wpd file extension in Word, and saving through the Save As command, making sure that the file type chosen is *.doc, which is the file extension for Word.

Microsoft Word also supports batch conversion of files in the .wpd file extension, and opening the Batch Conversion Wizard does this. This will guide the user in converting WPD files to DOC files. In cases that Microsoft Word is not able to read a WPD file, WordPerfect is used to convert files to Word, and it is simply done through the Save As command of WordPerfect.

The .wpd file extension is also used in the same way with the OmniPage Professional program. For the ACT! application, the .wpd file extension is a format for a text document created from ACT! 2 contact management program, which acts as a database for contacts that includes numbers, client name, notes, company information, and the like. ACT! 2 include a word processor, which is used to edit contacts, and mainly outputs WPD files.
