Hi F1,
I have installed the free IBM Lotus Symphony program on your DVD.
It works well and I can open the origional spreadsheet files from Lotus 'Smartsuite' (1995 ish) suffix .123 but the new program will not open my later version (Lotus Millennimum spreadsheet) .WK4
Is there a patch avaliable ?

Look on the site (http://symphony.lotus.com/software/lotus/symphony/home.jspa)

PC World only distributed it, they didnt make the program.

You will find Symphony is a different beast to .123 but maybe Open Office
will open yr files.

Hi Brad

The simple answer is that it doesn't support the later Smartsuite formats

have a read of this from their forum (http://symphony.lotus.com/software/lotus/symphony/thread.jspa?messageID=6086&#6086)

I found a copy of Lotus SMARTSUITE V3 CD and have reinstalled it on XP

This program is 13 years old yet it will open not only L.123 spreadsheets but also the later LOTUS MILLENNIMUM spreadsheets .WK4

All is well now. Thanks to all who replied .
