I just can't warm up to Excel. Sometimes I have one spreadsheet showing and try to load another, and I get a message "You don't have the resources to do that." I NEVER see such a message in Lotus. I can even delete the spreadsheet I was working on so I have a blank screen and still get the same message, but if I exit Excel, and restart it everythng works fine.

But there is the question of how do I transfer spreadsheets back to Lotus because Microsoft does not have a saving option to do it (though Lotus has the option of saving in Excel). Well I have found I can block in a large quantity of information on the Excel spreadsheet, copy it, and then paste it into Lotus. I lose the formulas in doing this, but that is a minor problem.
