VisiCalc Advanced IBM

VisiCorp VisiCalc was the original spreadsheet program for the IBM PC, Apple II, and Atari 800 computers. It was later overtaken by Lotus 1-2-3.

VisiCalc Advanced, released by Software Arts instead of VisiCorp, is historically important as it was both the last version of VisiCalc, and the late delivery date threw VisiCorp in to a litigious battle with Software Arts, the actual authors of VisiCalc. VisiCorp blamed this delay for harming their reputation and revenue, rather than their failure to market the product, but either way it played a major part in VisiCorp's demise.

The "Advanced" capabilities include: Variable Column widths Expanded formatting option Flexible printer control financial functions a smart help facility Microsoft mouse support full word prompts keystroke memory (macros)

Earlier "Advanced" versions were released for the Apple II and Apple III.
