Question about AppleWorks 6 for mac
Appleworks only works on os 7 classic and up to the final verison of 9 or 10.2

Hi, sorry you are having problems,
Well, here is what error -37 is: Code: error -37 bdNamErr Description: Bad file name (File System Error)
Basically, it is saying you cannot save a file by that name in that place....
Did you try saving it elsewhere on your Mac, like on the desktop ?
Just a side note, Apple stopped development on AppleWorks some time ago ( 3 years ) in favour of iWork. I highly recommend getting the newest version of iWork 09, it's compatible with all your Works documents and is really built for MacOS X 10.5, Leopard.
What do you mean whe you say “ Before I reimaged the machine ..” ?

Error -37 is for "bad file name". Under OS 9 you could name a file with more latitude than you can in OS 10. If these are old files, then they may just need to be "renamed" to something that works in OS 10.
Just do a "save as" and type in the file name again by hand.
