Lotus Bug in Non-English @ Commands

Lotus Bug in Non-English @ Commands

I was surprised to discover that it's impossible to use the German @ISTZAHL (...) command (for the English @ISNUMBER(...)). So I switched my 95LX to "English" and restarted Lotus again. I used the original @ISNUMBER command and saved the worksheet. After switching back to the "German" language I found that Lotus uses the incorrect form @ISTZAHL ((...), with two open brackets.

This is how you can cope with impossible-to-use commands:

  1. 1. Close all applications and switch language to English [Konfig][Land][Sprache] [English][Quit][Quit]
  2. 2. Select Lotus 1-2-3; note: Although most of your German macros will not work, the @-formulas will!
  3. 3. Find out the original @-command, i.e. by using the Help function. Use that command and save your worksheet.
  4. 4. Close applications and reselect German



  1. 5. Select Lotus again, reload your worksheet and see what happens.
