Batman28, I started with Lotus via DOS in 1990, now I use Excel. But ignoring the more esoteric/specialist features and functions of today's Excel, progression isn't apparent. To reiterate, my original Lotus could be contained on, and run from, a single floppy; my current Excel.exe file alone is c 9mb on Excel XP. And I need few, if any, of the functions. Further, I would argue Lotus macros and the Command Language was more flexible and intuitive than anything from Excel. Grant.
