Last Modified: 2010-04-22
I recently upgraded to the new Lotus.  I moved my personal work files into a "Work" file. however, when I try to open a new directory I get a screen with all kinds of things on it. The folder that holds all of these files is 1-2-3.  How do I get the folder holding my personal files to be the only folder in the "open workbook" screen?

Hi MaryJaye,

Go to File/UserSetup/1-2-3Preferences/FileLocations/WorkbookFiles and put in that the full path of the the directory where you now keep all your work, press OK. If you can remember the full path use Browse to find the subdirectory 'Work' and then press OK.

Hope that's what you needed.
