Description WPD is a text document file format created by Satellite Systems International for their WordPerfect word processing software in 1980. It is a historically popular word processing file format, which can also be opened by most versions of Microsoft Word. Development of the DOS and Macintosh versions of WordPerfect were stopped in 1997 but the Windows version is still under active development by current owners Corel. WordPerfect was the top selling word processing software during the 1980's and early 1990's, and retains a big fanclub to this day (so much so that it was still the second most popular office suite up to a couple of years ago). WordPerfect has been acquired twice - first by Novell in 1994, and then by Corel in 1996 who continue development of the product and the WPD file format to this day. The Office Open XML file formats are a set of file formats that can be used to represent electronic office documents. There are formats for word processing documents, spreadsheets and presentations as well as specific formats for material such as mathematical formulae, graphics, bibliographies etc.
Technical details WPD documents tend to to primarily contain formatted text. WPD files produced in Corel WordPerfect, the company that have developed the format since 1996, are also capable of storing embedded objects such as tables, graphs and images produced in other applications. WPD files contain streams of text, and store formatting information using tags which can be shown as reveal codes in Corel WordPerfect. These highlight how each section of text or object is formatted at a glance, and are therefore useful when trying to determine layout or formatting issues. Like similar file formats such as DOC, WPD files can also contain mail merge fields, which allow information from an external data source, such as a spreadsheet or database, to be inputted into a template. Office Open XML documents are stored in Open Packaging Convention (OPC) packages, which are ZIP files containing XML and other data files, along with a specification of the relationships between them. Depending on the type of the document, the packages have different internal directory structures and names.
