GOMF,

I haven't needed to do these conversions myself, so I don't know much about the quality of this method... Have you tried simply opening the Quattro Pro 5 files from within Excel, using the steps described in this document?

No need for a Conversion program. Just do the following

-Open Microsoft Excel,
-Click Open,
-In the "Files of Type" drop down list select "Quattro Pro/DOS files".
-Find the file you want to open.
-Click OPEN
-After it has opened and you have followed any prompts
-Do a save as and select "Microsoft Excel Workbook"
It is now converted and you can do what ever you want with the old file - Delete it or keep it as a back up.

RickHulshof, as you are new here:

a) Please read the thread (and open ture's link too, you will see that 'just' opening only will only work if the Quattro Pro worksheets are relatively simple)

b) Only post as answer if invited to or if question is a _simple_ how to.
