Spreadsheet programs that can work with WK1 (pfs:WindowWorks) documents?


I've got a couple of spreadsheets that I have to send to an old computer which has PFS:WindowWorks and a floppy drive. I've tried exporting my spreadsheets as CSV, but the old computer won't read those properly. Is there a way using Gnumeric, LibreOffice Calc, or some other spreadsheet program to convert my spreadsheets to WK1 or some other format (like WPL) that PFS:WindowWorks can use?

Gnumeric's file conversion tool ssconvert might work.

ssconvert is able to import the files I need without difficulty, however the exporter options don't appear to have the required formats listed. When I run it I get the following:

Code:
$ ssconvert ForceCalculations.xls --export-type=lotus ForceCalc.wk1

Unknown exporter 'lotus'.
Try --list-exporters to see a list of possibilities.

I just figured that out... Many read but have not found anything that will write.
