What is a WPD file?
A WPD file is a text document created by Corel WordPerfect, a popular word processor. It may contain formatted text, tables, drawn objects, and images. WPD files are stored in a proprietary Corel format, but can be exported to other formats from within WordPerfect.
Corel discontinued the DOS and Macintosh versions of WordPerfect in 1997. However, the company still develops the Windows version and includes it as the primary application within the WordPerfect Office suite.
WPD files are primarily used by WordPerfect users but can still be opened by using other word processors. Microsoft Word can open most versions of WPD files, while LibreOffice Writer and NeoOffice also support WPD files.
