Lotus SmartSuite 97 1-2-3 Opening s/sheets

  pppc 18:12 30 Sep 2003

Anyone know anything about SmartSuite 97? I occasionally get a problem in opening a spread sheet. When I open it from File/Open it loads and immediately shows 'The program has peformed an illegal operation......'. I close it - there is now an entry in the RECENT docs so I open it from there with no difficulty!

I did cure it once by saving in an earlier format and saving back in the 97 format.

I've had similar problems and had to uninstal it then reinstal.

It doesn't take long but remember to make a copy of all your documents first.

BurrWalnut - many thanks for the response: I did try re-installing several times to no avail. I have recently carried the problem over from a complete reinstall of Windows. But it's nice to know I'm not the only one to suffer it!!
