Can't read .bas files, need to modify

I have no experience in basic and just getting started, I have the need to edit a old program for my boss. He gave me all the files that he has. It's a bunch of .bas files and the .exe file of course. How do I look at the source code? I have tried notepad and winpedit but the files seam to have been saved as binary. this is program that does structural calculations and all I need to do is to add some features. I realize I might have to redo the entire thing but in order to do that I need to do some reverse engineering. I can't do anything if I can't even read the files. Any suggestions? I would really appriciate it if someone could help me figure out how to convert these to text.
thanks :)

this is what the .bas file looks like when I open it in Notepad:
