To what should I change the name? Is it only the file extension, or give it another name. How do I attach the file to you?
Thanks

Elize, you don't change the name or extension of your original Lotus file.

Here's the step by step:

1. Click on Open

2. Browse to where your original Lotus file is.

3. Single click on the file just to highlight it. You will see the file name go into the box below which says on the left "File Name".

4. Below that box should be one that has on the left of it "Files of Type".
Click on the little black downarrow on the right of the box. This will show all the different file types. Scroll down until you see the appropriate Lotus *.wk? type. Click on that (this tells Excel, or Approach etc. what type your original file is.)

5. Then click the "OPEN" button, and the program will automatically convert the Lotus to whatever program you are in (as long as it is a spreadsheet program.)

Note: When you want to save a file in a format for another program you can do similar actions. That is, tell the program what type of file extension you want to save the program as. Its all in the SAVE dialogue boxes.

Quattro Pro should also be able to directly open the program. You may have to run the Corel setup program and make sure all of the conversion filters are installed.
