MS Works database conversion?

OK, here's a challenge . . . I have a database created a long time ago with Microsoft Works, I think I was using OS7 or 8 at the time. I can still run this application in Classic, but is there any application out there for OSX that will import this data? I certainly can't input a couple of thousand entries and all related data manually, but I'd like to be running my database in OSX, especially if Apple is going to eventually phase out Classic. I've been looking for a while now, doesn't seem to be any solution.

Will works export as SYLK/.slk or tab-delimited text or comma-delimited text or other common format? Try the Save As or Export commands or any that have names or functions that sound similar to that.

It's also possible that MacLink Plus can convert them (see screen shot). If you have a small file in that format that you can post, I'll give it a go and let you know.
