   You wont be able to open it thru Excel. The version 9 or higher of 1-2-3 SmartSuite would open them.

Good luck!

If you are willing to email it to me as an attachment(provided it is not sensitive info) I will open it using Lotus123v9, save as a say a Lotus123 .wk1 file and return to you. You will then be able to open it with virtually any version of Excel. My email address is: patrick.arnold-baker@jaeger.co.uk

Or I can save it as Excel 97, Excel 5/9 or Excel 4. The choice is yours.
