    Hi - I have tried to try your first solution..bytefix. However, when I click on bytefix.exe, the black box area comes up in flash and disappears. It won't stay put and let me write the file name in it. Any ideas?

I assume that you are using Windows as your Operating System. Please note that this error is caused when the Lotus 123 file become corrupt or the file becomes damaged. It is normal and can happen to anyone any time. I am sending you some links. From these links download the Lotus 123 file repair utilities or software. Please download them and try to repair your Lotus 123 files. Carefully download and install them and then work out. I am giving the links in order of my preference.

Please note that the above two repair tools are free the following one in called " LotusNotesRecovery 1.0.0642" This tool is paid and I find it very remote that you might need it because it is used in terms of Data Base corruption. If you can access other Lotus 123 files in the same DB then definitely the downloaded tools from the above links will suffice your requirements.

Good Luck!

Microsoft Excel should open your old Lotus files.
Go to File > Open > Select Files of type: Lotus (*.wk?) and select your Lotus file.

Alternatively you could install and use OpenOffice spreadsheet or LibreOffice Calc and open your Lotus files.

In Lotus 9.5 Millennium Edition, cells have become frozen and can't be moved with the arrow keys. How did I cause this and how do I unfreeze the cells?

Occasionally I have found that particular cells become a problem. The following has worked for me and could be a way to fix your problem:

Assuming the problem cell is in Column D, insert a new column to the right of column D.
Copy Column D and paste it into Column E (the new Column you inserted). Delete Column D. Now check if that problem cell works OK.

Cannot open program. Error message "Lotus 123 Application has encountered a problem and needs to close". Worked fine last week.

Are you running Lotus Notes as well? There is a known compatibility issue and a patch for this.

Have you upgraded or installed new software recently ? Version 9.5 is not the latest version and has some issues with newer software.
