Just a question. What is Lotus? It was in a job description. I Googled it and got some about the flower but also about different types of Lotus and what I got was it is used for messaging and documenting? Is that right? Just curious. I am sure if I get the job they will teach me, but was just curious.

HI Holly,

I think there used to be a spreadsheet called LOTUS 1-2-3 that some people mused instead of EXECL - like some people used word perfece intstead of word. But that was a long time ago - and I haven't heard of it in a long time.

I did a quck gogle and probably returend the same stuff you did, but in case you missed it here is one link I found: http://www-01.ibm.com/software/lotus/

I bet Repa willo be able to give you some answers.

Fay

I remember Lotus 123 the same as you, Fay. Never used it. It is a spreadsheet that was used in older versions of windows to enter and format spreadsheet data. In addition, 1-2-3's Web tables allowed users to bring live Web-based information into the spreadsheet to perform analysis functions.

Lotus Symphony is a suite of office productivity software for creating, editing, and sharing word processing documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, available for free download. Designed to handle the majority of tasks that end users perform, Lotus Symphony software supports the OpenDocument Format (ODF) allowing organizations the ability to access, use and maintain their documents over the long term without concern about end of life uncertainties or ongoing software licensing and royalty fees.

Lotus Symphony sounds similar to Open Office. You can read more about it here:

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/downloads/ls/symphony/?S_CMP=LSDL

and a free download is offered, but you have to get an IBM ID to proceed, which it looks like they provide a way to do that.
