4Word 1987

4WORD is an add-in word processor for Lotus 1-2-3. Unlike TSR programs 4WORD works from within Lotus, using the same menus, using the Lotus printer drivers, and storing your documents inside your spreadsheet. It can copy and paste data between your document and spreadsheet as well link to live cells in to your document.

Requires Lotus 1-2-3 Release 2.00 or 2.01.


Release notes

Keep in mind that under DOS, one must normally completely exit an application program before running a different program that does something else.

Having a word processor module directly in Lotus 1-2-3, even if limited, saved people a lot of hassle.

Installation instructions

Before using, you must configure 1-2-3 to load the add-in module:

Copy the files from the program disk in to your 1-2-3 directory, run 4install specifying your 123.set file, and then run add_mgr, specifying your 123.set configuration file. Then start 123, press alt-f10 to start the add-in manager, select 4word.adn and assign it to alt-f9.
