How about integrating spreadsheets in a text document (cf.Word, which is pretty terrible in MSOffice ? This was Symphony's strong point
Symphony is where I cut my teeth with Spreadsheets but more importantly where I fell in love with databases. So I eagerly downloaded and went to install it only to fail time and time again. Does anyone have any idea why it failed? I am not a newby but I could not get the damn thing to install and it does not take a rocket scientist to install software now does it? Appreciate any feedback. Regards, Les
I still have Lotus 123 v9.8 in use on a few of my employee's computers. It is much easier to learn for people that don't need to use spreadsheets everyday, and don't the complications caused by Excel.
Les Sorry I can't help you... yet. I learned on Lotus-123. If I can find the software to download, I'll give it a try and maybe then be able to give you an answer. Mike
I cut my teeth on Microsoft Multiplan on a Commodore 64 and I have memories of using Visicalc. Those were the days. I remember when Lotus Jazz came out on the Macintosh; it might even have been the predecessor to Lotus Symphony, not sure. I must be approaching memory full... LOL John
