I have "inherited" a Lotus 1-2-3 file of the above-
mentioned type, and need to convert it to an Excel file.
It cannot be done directly from within Excel...
(get "Cannot open Lotus 123 file" message), and have
tried using the Convert Zone Excel Converter to no avail
(get "Error, Can not convert C:\...\...\xxx.123! Error
reason is Cannot open Lotus 123 file message).

I know little about Lotus, but my searches for this file
type keeps returning info on Domino.

Can anyone help me?
