LOTUS 1-2-3

LOTUS 1-2-3

Use compatible format

Lotus 1-2-3 has been out for a long time, and there have been many enhancements to the program and many different versions of it for a variety of platforms (DOS, Windows, etc.).

The version used on the HP 100/200LX is Version 2.4 for DOS. There can be a compatibility problem if you are using a newer version of Lotus on your desktop and try to import a worksheet file you created on your desktop. You may get the error "Worksheet revision is out of date." This is because the newer versions save the files in slightly different ways.

Fortunately, the people at Lotus foresaw the potential problem. Different versions of Lotus allow you to save spreadsheets in a variety of formats. All you have to do is save the worksheet in a compatible format. From the desktop, choose File, Save As, and specify the File type as 1-2-3 (WK1).

MS-Excel and most other spreadsheet programs on the market will allow you to save files in Lotus WK1 format and will also be able to open files in this format.
