An EQN file contains an equation created for use in a Corel WordPerfect document. WordPerfect users create EQN files using the program's Equation Editor. Then, they can insert the equation the EQN file contains into a WordPerfect document.

### More Information

Scientists, mathematicians, technical writers, and others may need to insert formatted equations into their WordPerfect documents (.WPD files). To allow these users to easily create, edit, save, and load equations, WordPerfect includes an Equation Editor. To open the Equation Editor, users select:

Insert → Equation

After creating an equation in the Equation Editor, users can choose to save that equation as an EQN file (by selecting File → Save... from the Equation Editor window). They can then load their EQN file in the Equation Editor at a later time, to quickly insert the equation the file contains into a document.

### How to open an EQN file

You can open an EQN file with Corel WordPerfect (Windows). To do so, open WordPerfect's Equation Editor (Insert → Equation). Then, select File → Open... from the Equation Editor to open your EQN file.
