I know nothing about Microsoft Works (the usual source of .wps files) but the
following reference seems to indicate that MS Word in it's newer incarnations
can open this file type. Note the caveat that the .wps file format was changed
at one point and Word needs a special plugin to pen it.

Hope that helps.
