Lotus 123 Navigation

Guest

Until now I have been using Excel 2002 and was able to use my combination of
Excel and Lotus commands to get around very effectively.

I was able to access the Lotus commands by setting the menu Help/Lotus 1-2-3
Help/ to Demo.

I also had ticked Tool/Options/Transition/ Transition Navigation Keys and
applied the forward slash as the menu key for Lotus 123 Help.

I haven't been able to find these features in 2003. Can anyone tell me
where to find them?

hi,
like you, i too was a long time lotus user. microsoft has been slowly
abandoning lotus. they stopped file support at wk4 which was R5. 123 format
file didn't appear untill 2000. I have xl2003 and i think in xl2003,
microsoft finally discontinued lotus help. or at least i can't find it either.
you know what i miss the most. the classic keyboard menu. no mouse required.

sigh.

Yes it's gone. And in Excel 2007 all Lotus file support is history.

OMG! So they think we will continue to *upgrade* if they remove features?

I also used the mouse-less hotkeys all the time. Using the mouse takes up
far too much time.

I think I'll install my old version of Excel on the new machine and forget
about the new one.

Thanks for the confirmation of my worst fears, guys.
