Software problem; Lotus 1-2-3 Release 9 for Windows

Hi,

I have been working on these 2 related issues non-stop for days now.....I really hope you can help me:

I am working in a spreadsheet created with Lotus 1-2-3, Release 9 for Windows. I am using an HP AMD desktop with XP Professional OS.

I have created several radio buttons (placing one button per row within a designated column of the spreadsheet) Each button is hyperlinked to its own specific web addresses. The radio buttons work fine and there is nothing wrong with the links.

PROBLEM: The column is included in the range selected for print, but no matter what I try, the buttons will not print. The range is printed, but the rows are blank;

PROBLEM 2: When I select the radio button and open its drawing properties, the options are shaded (or grayed out) and not abled for selection. Per the user HELP content, I have verified, over verified, and over, over, verified that the workbook cells, sheet cells, range cells, and individual cells are all unlocked and are not protected.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks, Linda

    I would appreciate further help from any assistants who may have expertise with this software. It is not a printer problem. Thank you. DixieDoodle

    I am not a novice user. I have tried everything I can think of. This answer must come from an experienced Lotus 1-2-3 member. Thank you.

    Nothing helpful.

  • DixieDoodle Mar 06, 2008

    I'll try one last time to define my problem:

    I have created a huge spreadsheet in Lotus 1-2-3.

    The huge spreadsheet contains one column of buttons which were created using the "create" command.

    Each button links to its own specific website.

    When using the spreadsheet, the buttons are visible, and all buttons work. (Each goes directly to the website it is set-up to go to.)

    NOW........

    I go through the page preview and set-up command.

    Everything is visable and correct on the screen...... EXCEPT the column with the buttons. The column shows up with its background colors (the same as all other columns) but the buttons are not present.

    When I select the button and open its properties, the tab for setting-up the buttons, font, etc. is shaded (grayed out).

    I don't want a wordpad document with buttons.

    I just want to be able to go in and adjust some of the button attributes, and print my spreadsheet - with the buttons visible.


    Thank you

    Please, are there any experienced Lotus 1-2-3 users available? Thank you. Linda

Hi,

If I may add to the other posted solutions:

To my recollection, Lotus 1-2-3 suppresses the printing of a row if the first character is a pipe character/vertical bar (|), the vertical bar probably won't be visible in the worksheet grid; look at the cell address along the top of the window. Pls verify that no pipe character(s) are embedded somewhere in the range you would want printed.

Alternately, to verify whether the cells/range are hidden, highlight all of the cells in question, right-click and select "Range Properties" (from the pop-up menu), click on the "Security tab" (key icon) and verify that there is no check mark in the Hide Cell Contents checkbox.

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

1) The column and row labels of the currently selected cell are highlighted in ..... If you highlight a range to be printed, this print area is ignored.
2) have you associated the button with a event?

If you are doing web designing then i suggest you to use the softwares like front page,coffee cup,hot dog...
this coffee cup,hot dog are very famous softwares used for web designing... you can simply insert some default button and give links without writing scripts the scripts will be loaded by itself it is purely GUI based.. and u can insert your own graphical designed buttons etc..there will be many other options available...
front page is available in ms-office by default.. it depends on which version you have installed...

How to stop 'No Sitemap Found' error in Lotus Notes?


In case you get the error message, while trying to open your mail file using the icon on the workspace, you can dismiss the error message and close all the opened tabs of the mail file. Go to the workspace and use the icon to again open the mail file.
Notes: The 'No sitemap found' error message usually occurs when you open the mail file from the workspace, while mailbox and calendar tabs of a previous session are still open.
There are various other ways to fix such error messages and issues occurring in Lotus Notes. In case you are still not able to see mail items in the mailbox folders, you can use various techniques to recover inaccessible or lost mail items from Lotus Notes.
Since, Lotus Notes is a professional software, used mostly in organizations for an efficient communication; it is advised to use a professional tool to overcome any issue including data loss situations.
Recovery Toolbox for Lotus Notes is a highly efficient tool to recover user mailbox items like emails, contacts, notes, journals, etc. from corrupt or inaccessible Lotus Notes database files. With the ability to display preview of all the recoverable items, the tool ensures an efficient recovery process. The recovered files can be then saved in any desired location. In addition, the tool is widely compatible across various versions of Windows operating system including Windows 8, 7, Vista, Server 2003, XP, 2000, and NT (SP6).

Excel is devloped for which operating system


Microsoft Excel has become a crucial tool in the international workplace, providing basic database functionality, along with spreadsheet and calculation tools. While it is currently the market leader for spreadsheets, the history of excel shows that throughout the 1980s and 90s it faced significant competition from rival software platforms like Lotus Notes, Mosaic TWIN and the Paperback VP Planner. The original Microsoft spreadsheet program was called Multiplan - which began development in 1982 - but it was never as financially successful as Lotus Notes.
Interestingly, Excel was first developed for the Macintosh operating system beginning in 1984. It made use of graphical menus and the mouse, innovating strongly relative to the other major competitors at the time. Drop-down menus and a point and click interface helped to make it more usable to non-technical workers, and in turn helped to influence graphical user interfaces in other software and operating systems at the time.
As such, when Windows was launched in 1987, Excel was one of the most important and popular pieces of software for it. The early exploration of the graphical user interface for Windows had already been conducted and market tested by earlier versions of Excel. While it was certainly not the first spreadsheet software package, it was the first to provide a powerful combination of usability and functionality to business clients of all sizes.
Lotus was relatively slow to bring Lotus 123 to Windows, failing to predict the popularity of the operating system.
One of the major turning points in Excel was the inclusion of Visual Basic for Applications in 1993, which greatly increased the functionality of the software. In turn, it also encouraged a generation of professionals to learn the programming language, further solidifying the long term demand for Excel over other spreadsheet suites
