    Just noticed the *current* version of MYOB Accountants Enterprise supports export to these two old gems:

    I remember having to 'convert' so many well iterated 123 spreadsheets to excel and having to pregenerate so many functions into lookup tables (among other workarounds) just to make them work.

    WordPerfect 5 - I still pine for "Reveal Codes" - so you can see where the formatting gets stuffed up.

    I have Microsoft Multiplan for the C64 somewhere, and I installed Multiplan on SCO XENIX for customers more than once, too..

    Isn't that what the Backwards P does?

    Show/Hide Nonprinting Characters.

    I dare you to try to export and then import. Then find some minor bug and complain to MYOB.

    You. I love you.
    I remember 'collecting' my favourite animated icons onto a floppy.

    Why Windows never did this I don't know. Single-click a filing cabinet icon, the cabinet draw opens.

    Genius.

    Xtree for sure. And the days of multiple autoexec.bat and config.sys files customised for whatever you needed them for.

    Whoah whoah whoah.... Lotus 123? What, were you made of money?

    The rest of us poor bastards had to use "As Easy As". Heaven forbid you had a decent sized spreadsheet, and no math co-processor on your 286. Hitting F5 to calculate your sheet would take several minutes.

    Xtree Gold yes!

    QEMM386 from the same era - not so much software you use but it got me enough conventional memory to play all my games!
