Customer Question
My windows 97 computer...

My windows 97 computer just crashed and burned. I have all my files on Lotus 123 and want to use them on my MacPro2013 OSX.10

Technician's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Mac Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

I tried downloading Lotus Symphony and installing, but it failed.

Technician's Assistant: Is there anything else the Mac Technician should be aware of?

All my bookkeeping, job schedules are on Lotus.123

Hello,

Which version of windows did you have on the old computer? You said 97 but they never had a version called that, was it XP, Vista, or maybe 7?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
