I have suite of management worksheets in Lotus 123 ( I think 2000 )

This is still active on my computer.

I am now working on a PC (Laptop) in Windows 10.

I am using the Office Suite 2019.

I used to be able to open these files in my old version of Excel 2010, I no longer can

The files are .123  but I am able to convert them to .wk4

It will be a catastrophe if I am unable to convert the workbooks to EXCEL

Can anyone please help.

I attach a Lotus 123 workbook file for reference

Sorry it will not accept the .123 file!

Find a computer that still runs Office 2003 (or earlier).

Open the Lotus workbook (.123 or .wk4) in Excel 2003 and save it as a .xls workbook.

Transfer the .xls workbook to your current PC.
