RE: Spreadsheet

Why do you prefer Quattro Pro ?  I am exploring converting my lotus 123
files to Excel or Open office.

Excel changes the macros it seems with each new version.

Hello Gary:

I've not tried the newer version of Excel or LibreOffice Calc, but I've
tried  OpenOffice which is also free.

I prefer QuattroPro for spreadsheets, but have used Excel for those projects 
 where the client requires it.  I have found OpenOffice Calc to be very
similar to Excel.  You might want to try that and see what you think.

I believe that OpenOffice was created for the Linux platform and was ported
to the Windows platform about 7 years ago.  That has given the developers 
to work out any bugs.

Good Luck,
