NOTES.INI settings to re-enable Lotus 1-2-3 (.WKS) Import & Export . . .

Love how Lotus take away a feature that is invaluable for ad-hoc importing of data into Lotus Notes applications . . . and do not replace it with an alternative. Lotus, please add an Import/Export to .XLS (not .XLSx). Pretty please?

Anyhoo, you can edit the NOTES.INI of your 8.5 Lotus Notes client to use this work-around:

Enabling Import - Add a line like this:

VIEWIMP6=Lotus 1-2-3,0,_IWKSV,,.123,.WK1,.WK3,.WK4,.WKS,.WR1,.WRK,,4,

Enabling Export - Add a line like this:

VIEWEXP6=Lotus 1-2-3,0,_XWKS,,.123,.WK1,.WK3,.WK4,.WKS,.WR1,.WRK,,4,

Note: The VIEW[IMP/EXP]6 must not conflict with an existing value, so may need to be replaced by the next available number e.g VIEWIMP7, VIEWIMP8 etc.


Hth.
