What is a WPT file?

A WPT file is a text document template created by Corel WordPerfect, a word processor for Windows. It contains a pre-formatted document that may include text, drawn objects, charts, tables, and images. The primary purpose of WPT files is to allow users to quickly create multiple WordPerfect (.WPD) documents with similar content and appearance.

WordPerfect is available with the Corel WordPerfect office suite, which is similar to Microsoft Office. You can use the WordPerfect word processor in home, academic, and business environments to author various documents, such as reports, letters, invitations, resumes, flyers, and newsletters.

While the proprietary Corel WPD document format is the main file type associated with WordPerfect, WPT templates are a helpful format when you want to re-use a document to create other documents with a similar layout or content. Examples of commonly used templates include company letterheads, business memos, legal forms, and mailing envelopes.
