Subject description: How to run my old old Lotus Approach database prorams with puppy linux 4.2 ?
 

Hi every body ! I am brand new to Linux. I have started out with Puppy Linux 4.2 and liked it instantly ( I once tried version 3.01 and gave up on linux as being too complicated ). However I have not been able to find out how to install IBM's Lotus Approach in Puppy Linux 4.2. I have some old database programs written in Lotus approach which I would like to run in Puppy Linux 4.2 also. Is it at all possible to do this ? I would be very grateful if somebody could help me out.

You could try Open office.
To see if they can be imported.
I used IBM Symphony to convert all my old Lotus spreadsheets to Open Office formats.

Symphony did a better job importing the formatting than Open Office.
But once converted Open office opens them fine and is what I prefer.

Its a good idea to convert to a later format so that you can make use of new features of the latest software but still retain all the work you put into the originals.
