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).

Lotus 123 problems


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.

Will lotus 123 load from a cd on windows 8


you have to create a batch file to run Lotus 1-2-3, and (so far as I can tell) you have to run the program from your root drive, because the program makes its calls TO the root drive. Here's the batch program you create in Notepad or other plain-text editor:

cd\
cd\lotus
123.exe
cd\
exit

* Delete the 'exit' if you want the window to stay open as a DOS window, after you're done with the program. Save the file with a '.bat' extension. (Note: unlike XP, you can close the window with your mouse, afterwards.)

* After creating that file, you have to right click on the file name, select 'Properties (in Win8, Vista, XP) and do some more tweaking. The Properties dialogue box SHOULD show the following tabs: General, Shortcut, Options, Font, Layout, Colors, Compatibility. Each of these needs editing.

GENERAL tab: select Normal Window or even Maximized (though it won't actually maximize). Also in Win8, click on Advanced, and 'Run as administrator'.
OPTIONS tab: select Large cursor. You can always change it, but since the program really won't run fullscreen, you'll want the cursor to be oversized, since the window will be smaller and will shrink everything in it.
FONT tab: this is what Windows uses to select the screen size, despite all the other settings (which you also still need to set). In Win7, you have three types of fonts to set. Click on the 'Bold' option, as that makes the text easier to read.
For True Type 'Consolas' font (which results in a more square window), pick a font size between 18 and 24. More than that will be bigger than your entire monitor screen, when you actually run the program (looks are deceiving, you have to test the results with trial and error).
For True Type Lucida Console font, use the same 18-24 font size range, but the screen will be much shallower and wider, so you can afford to decrease font size to 18-20. 28 is really too wide, on a widescreen monitor (1366x768 pixels). But maybe you'll like it, or your monitor will accommodate that size. Mine wouldn't.

For Raster fonts, 12 x 16 is the optimal setting. ON some (i.e., Dell Ultrasharp) monitors, Raster fonts look best. On my Toshiba 19L4200U TV monitor, the Lucida Consule setting is clearest.
LAYOUT tab: Pick a window size width no greater than 85, and height no greater than 38. Then test to see if it's too big. If yes, you'll also need to decrease font size, as well as the Layout size, here. Experiment, because you can't gauge the right mix of window and font size, just by the diagrams in the dialogue box.

COLORS tab: Lotus 1-2-3 makes hardware calls on the screen, so whatever you put in this tab, it will ignore. But other DOS programs might 'obey' the colors you set here. If you remember the old Norton Utilities days of setting Mode, etc., that's what this is.

COMPATIBILITY tab: You can't set resolution to override at 640x480. The setting is either ignored, or your monitor will freak out. For Lotus 1-2-3, in Win 8 I didn't need to turn on the 'compatibility mode'. It made no difference in the results. (You don't need it in XP, either.)
* Finally, you have to find the program itself, then right-click on the program name and edit its Properties. Here, that program is 123.exe, and it has to be in your root directory. (All the program files Lotus will use, must be there; at least one wk1 file must be in C:\123 at startup. I'm sure this can be tweaked, but I'm using the default Lotus program settings for a typical installation.)

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.
