Converting a Microsoft WDB to a Word document

We have two older computers, both with Microsoft Works - as well as Word. Our newer laptop has stand alone Word 2013. I would like to know how to copy a WDB document on flash drive and put it on the laptop with Word 2013.
Thanks

If you can save the file on the older computer as a .csv file it will open in Excel if you have that on the laptop. As far as I'm aware .wdb files are database documents so you'll probably struggle to open it in any word processing program without the use of a third party file converting program. I could well be wrong there though.

I was not able to save this in that as I recall. (I just woke up) But I will look into that. I found copies of Microsoft Works 9 on Amazon for sale. The price was cheap and according to the Q&A, it should work on our laptop should I choose to purchase that. I am wondering whether this product will come with a license key.
