    Default EXCEL SPREADSHEETS

    Will AlphaFour, Ver. 8 import (and export) Excel Spreadsheets? I currently have a number of Excel Spreadsheets which I use as "data sources" when doing a mail merge in Word. I would like to use some of these spreadsheets as a starting point for building Alpha databases.

    Ron;
    I don't believe any version of A4 will import or export Excel per se. It will import and export lotus 123 (in a wk1 format) or ASCII files. For your particular need, it is probably easiest to open your Excel spreadsheet in Excel and then, in Excel, save it as a DBIII file. Alpha 4 will then be able to open it natively.

    Hope this helps,
    Duncan
