Can i create WK4 format in VB.net?

Hi all i would like to ask if there is a way to create a wk4 file in Visual Basic .NET?

My scenario is we have upgraded to Office 2016, I know that it doesn't support saving excel file to a wk4 format and we're disposing older units with Office 2003 that can make a wk4 file.

Is there any alternative way to import data in lotus notes other than wk4 format?

Create a file in wk4 format? AFAIK: no.

Why do you need wk4 format? What application do you use that requires a file to be in the wk4 format?

Notes accepts what thet call Tablular Text, but there are far better ways to import or communicate with Notes. For example, you can write an agent that imports a file in CSV format. And you can write webservices for the Domino server. Many more options available!

Hi Sjef

Before we use excel 2003 to save a wk4 format when importing new data to table in lotus notes.
But we're now migrated to a more higher Microsoft and disposing the old one we need to find a way to upload .wk4 file.

Since we can export data to excel by coding in vb.net i thought that there is way to export data to a .wk4
