    Characters In DOS or Windows
    « on: March 08, 2014, 07:44:48 AM »
    I use Lotus under DOS and Excel under windows what I want to know is there any way of making the characters displayed on the Lotus under Dos to display the same way in Excel? These characters are from the same spreadsheet.

    I couldn't find anything exactly like the second one but it looks like it might be a serif-style lower-case Phi, so I went with that.
    I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

    I presume you mean, can it be done without manually changing characters in one file or the other?  I'm not absolutely sure but I doubt it can be done. 

    Why not transition all your spreadsheet files to Excel and be done with your very old version of Lotus?
