Re: Spreadsheet

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have used spreadsheets from VisiCalc, Quattro Pro,  Lotus 123 and I think
Excel is best because of its VBA programming capability among other
If you want to convert Lotus 123 macros to Excel you have rewrite it in
Excel VBA. I could try to help you with that you if send me the Lotus 123
file with the macro.
You can get the lastest version of Microsoft office for a $10/monthly
subscription where you can install it to up 5 devices(PC's , tablets,
Ipads, Iphones) and up to 5 users.

Merry Christmas,
