Where do I find a converter in Microsoft Office XP Professional to convert
directly from a *.wb1 file in Quattro Pro to Excel 2002.
At present I am using a workaround, by first saving as a Lotus 1-2-3 file in

Hey, this is my first post, so bear with me. My office has Excel on some computers, and Quattro Pro on others. I am having difficulty with this because I designed a macro in Excel, but I cannot figure out how to get it to run in Quattro Pro. Does anyone know if this is possible or where I might be able to look to find out how this can be done?

Someone has sent me some Quattro Pro 7.0 files that I need to open up. When

anywhere on the web site. Can someone point me to a converter or how I can
convert into Excel 2003 from Quattro. I have already tried the "Office

Hi Everyone,

I have been switched from Corel Quattro Pro 8 to Excel because of 04 main reasons (1) domination of MS Office (2) Found (3) Excel 2007 can now handle the nesting leaves created in 10 year old version of Quattro Pro and finally (4) downloaded the Mr. Excel's Book "Learn Excel 97 to 2007".
Quattro has a capability to load xls files of ver. 5-7 as well as converts its QB3 format to xls.
Problem is that Excel is silent to change the format of numerical values. It can just change the formats available on the ribbon but custom format launcher nor Ctrl+1 is not responding.
Is there any solution?

Hi all,

On one computer I run MS Excel 2003 and Windows XP Professional.
On a new, recently bought computer I run Quattro Pro X3 and Windows Vista home premium.

So I've copied some sheets to the new computer and opened them with Quattro Pro.
Sometimes it returned the message "Quattro Pro loader discovered a problem" or something like this.
Sometimes it actually did open the file.

Since today Quattro Pro gives a runtime error immediately when started up, and shuts down.

Does this have anything to do with opening sheets from another version?

Good son was able to recover some files I created using Quattro Pro...the bad news is... I can't figure out how to open them in Excel and no longer have Quattro to open them. I've tried importing them every way I can think of, but no luck. Any ideas on opening these files or am I just out of luck?

Quattro and cannot open in Excel. Any suggestions?

Hi... newbie here. Looks like a very nice forum.

have not used Excel very much having used Quattro as my primary spreadsheet. I periodically have to compile a spreadsheet from several hundred comma delimited ASCII text in a single directory. I have a Quattro sheet with a macro that does this; however I did not author the macro. I do know that it uses a kludge written by Corel to enable it to work in our version (9) of Quattro due to some change made in Quattro from version 8 involving parsing. I think I can follow how it works and the key seems to be the following line of code:

{GetDirectoryContents FileList,"D:\MyFiles\Form 4 Text Files\*.txt"} where "FileList" is a named range.

This generates a list of filenames. The macro then imports the first file, parses the data into columns, drops a line and then does the same thing for the next file until all the text files have been imported.

My problem is that I would like to do the same thing with a similar group of files, differing only in that they have one additional field of data and that they are saved in .CSV rather than pure .TXT format. But the .CSV files stop the macro in its tracks after the first file is imported. The same thing happens if I rename the files .TXT. I think the only difference bewteen the two formats is an additional period on the end of file marker, visible only in a hex editor. Oddly enough, when Quattro extracts data to a comma delimited text file, it saves it as a .CSV file.

I think I could get get Excel to do this if I could generate the list of file names. But I've searched Excel's help files and could not find anything that imports filenames from a source directory or anything like that. (My long departed departed friend Lotus 3.1 had a menu command to do so)

I tried using the above line of code in Excel and it does nothing. I don't know where it came from as I can't find anything about it in the Quattro documentation that I have.

This seems to be a pretty simple issue but its got me flummoxed. If anyone has some thoughts how I could accomplish this in Excel it would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to merge 150~ Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 .txt files into 1 Microsoft Office Excel 2007 .xls document. If I did this by typing, it would take countless hours of unnecessary work to merge them. However, I’m pretty sure there is a code that I can use to merge them all at once. Can someone share that code with me?

All 150~ Microsoft Office Outlook .txt files follow the same format. The Microsoft Office Excel 2007 .xls document uses a format that is compatible with the Microsoft Office Outlook .txt files.

Example of what I want to do (Refer to pictures below):
Outlook “A” -> Excel “A”
Outlook “B” -> Excel “B”

Sorry about that. Here is a link to a webpage where I have uploaded a txt version of the email format, xls version of excel format, and a screenshot of the form where the costomers enter their information to be emailed.

Why should MS Excel daily user switch from Excel 2003 to 2007 (or 2010)?
I'm considering to change from XP to W7 64 bit.

I've been a keen friend of Excel since version 95 and Quattro Pro prior to it. I have created some business applications and databases with some macros for daily personal usage. I have bought DigiDB lisence for Excel 2003.
I keep Excel 2003 running 24x7 on my workstation. Same to Outlook 2003 from Office packet but normally I don't use any other Office components..
I run XP Pro as it's still a flawless environment but likey XP is coming to end due to decreasing support from MS and advanced HDD formatting standard.
So there is no other way but sooner or later to switch to Windows 7 and 64 bit to achieve better photo handling capabilities.
But what about MS Office 2003?
I have searched the web but couldn't find any replies to the question why should I one from Office 2003 Pro to Office 2007 or 2010. More rows and more columns isn't a reason to me.
Any suggestions, should one go to Win 7 64 bit and still keep Office 2003 32 bit?

If I want to convert Excel 97-2003 files to Excel's 2007 format to take advantage of the extra rows and columns, I tried saving the files to the new xlsx format, but this does not work.

Then I read about an Office "Convert" capability in Chapter 5 of MrExcel's "Miracles" eBook. However, when I click on the Office Button I do not see any "Convert" option.

Then I did a search and found a utility called the Office Converter Pack and doenloaded it from but after installing it I could not find any existence of a program called "Office Converter" in Start> Programs, and I do not see any difference in the Office Button selections.

Can someone shed light on how to do what I'm want to do... to in essence "upgrade" 97-2003 file formats to enable them to make use of the new 2007 feature set. I suppose copying and pasting all sheets to new 2007 workbooks would work, but that seems like a very ineffiecient method.

I've developed a windows application which creates an excel file. The
application functions fine on an XP machine running Office 2003. However, it
blows out when it's ran on an XP machine running Office 2007. I've updated
the interop reference to the new interop. I've realized that if I run the
executable as the administrator, it functions correctly, but it will not run
under any other account, even if the other account has admin rights.
Below is a snippet of the code. The add method is where the problem occurs.

Dim xlApp As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application
Dim xlWb As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook
Dim xlWs As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet
xlApp = New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application
xlWb = xlApp.Workbooks.Add

Can anyone help?

When I double click an Excel document it opens properly.
BUT, a second blank Excel (without a file/document) opens behind it.

This just started recently.
This even occurs in Safe Mode.
I've repaired, uninstalled and reinstalled.
I've tried both Office 2007 and 2010 with the same results.

The following were empty:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\STARTUP
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\XLSTART
And I've tried:
