Jim got some ClipArt from the Microsoft website and it was downloaded as an .MPF file. Jim wonders how to use this file format, as it is one he is not familiar with.
MPF is an acronym for Media Package File. It is an archive (compression) format used by Microsoft to bundle up, in this case, WMF graphic files used by the ClipArt capabilities of Word. You should use the Clip Organizer portion of Word 2002 or Word 2003 to open the MPF file. Clip Organizer will uncompress the file and save the graphics it contains in a format that may be easier to understand.
