Apple Works, and previously Claris Works files cannot be opened in any current version of  iWorks (Pages, Numbers, Keynote)

Fortunately there is a way to convert those old files to a format which can at least be opened.

 

Libre Office is available as a  free download and will open many file types including Claris/Apple works files

Once opened they can then be saved out in another format which can be read by other programs such as Microsoft Word, Excel etc.
