Convert Lotus --> Windows trouble-free?

  User-4CC88CE5-DA27-44EE-A0310A8D232498A3 13:42 20 Feb 2004

Hi Gang,
This is probably an easy one for you boffins..

As stated, want to convert (accurately!) Lotus Suite files to the equivalent (or better still most recent!) Microsoft files (Xcel & Word in particular).

I know that you can do the 'save as' thing, but it just doesn't cut the mustard. Is there a good quality piece of jiggery-pokery software that will do an excellent job?

Maybe I will be a boffin one day too..

You either use the export/save as functions in Lotus to make a Microsoft compatible file or you use a third party file viewer like Avantstar QuickView Plus click here

All the file viewer allows you to do is open a file, do minor editing and save it into a useful format whether you have the source program it originated from installed or not. If you have any complex programming in your Approach databases or 123 speadsheets you're goosed.

Then again, exportng out to MS documents from Lotus if you have complext scripts at work doesn't usually go very well anyway.

The differences between VB/VBA and the scripting/macro language used by Lotus...
