What are .pln files?

    An attachment emailed to me is a .pln file that the sender claims to open
    with Word. My computer does not recognise this file. I tried the Microsoft
    web search for a solution which recommended RegCure. But RegCure didn't do
    anything. What is a pln file and how can I open one?

    Its could be a Canon photo file. You can try inserting the file in your
    word document rather than just openiong it. I don't know what version of
    Word you are using so I can't give you the instructions here.

    Alternatively, try opening the file in your browser like IE8 or
    Mozilla/Firefox.

    A Google search suggests these could be WordPerfect spreadsheet files.
    Perhaps your sender has a version of Word that contains converters for
    WordPerfect files, where you don't--hence the difference.

    Thanks, Susan. You could be right. I tried downloading a file extension
    "fix-all" programme - but it said my computer had no problem with the .pln
    extension! I'm destined not to win this one.

    Thanks for your suggestions - regrettably neither worked. Suspect Susan is
    right & its an ancient WordPerfect file.

    Perhaps your friend who can open them could then do a File, Save As and save
    them back to a compatible version for your system.
