Blank sheet opening a .123 file

Postby leomac » Wed Jan 30, 2019 12:10 am

Hello everyone,

I have to open a lotus file, extension .123.
When I open the file, open office asks to insert the font, I leave the standard already selected (Western Europe DOS/OS2-437/US).
The program opens the document but the sheets are all blank. If I save the file with the extension .odt, open office crashes.

What I've to do? Thanks
OpenOffice 3.1 on Windows Vista

What makes you think OpenOffice knows how to open lotus 123 fonts?

Look at http://www.zamzar.com and see if their free online conversion service offers 123 to .ods or .xls conversion.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.6 on Xubuntu 18.04.2 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP

Google for a file conversion site to convert the .123 file to a .ods or xls file.

Buy a copy of Lotus 123 from eBay - it is a few dollars. My Lotus 123 from 1995 runs under Windows 7 without any problems.

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
