    Default AlphaWorks or Electric Desk

    Does anyone have copies of these two titles?

    My dad who just passed away kept all of his finances in the *.ss format and we can not find the software to be able to read, print out, and give this information to the accountants after his passing.

    Any help would be tremendously appreciated.

    Thanks,

    I just checked the box of Alphaworks that we have here, but it is empty. Good luck with your search.

    Yes he did and sent me a copy of Lotus Works which does not work with the *.ss file format...

    Guess the software has to be either Electric Desk or AlphaWorks.

    Gosh it's fun to remember back to those days and how blown away by that software at the time (back in the days of Dos) as being the coolest thing I'd ever seen in my life.

    Well, if you hear of anyone with a copy of either of those titles please let me know and thanks for your efforts,

    Best for now,
    Brian

    Hi Brian,

    Did you ever find a copy of Electric Desk? My dad still has his original disks, if you want, next time I'm home I'll get you a copy. I'm in the process of looking for a program to convert all his files to a more modern format, he's still booting up the old 8088 when he wants to check something he's saved.

    Brian,
    Having used Alphaworks, then Lotusworks, the only difference I was aware of was the name and the number of disks it arrived in.
    *.ss files must be for Electric Desk.
    Actually, if someone has a copy of LotusWorks I would be extremely grateful

    Brian,
    If you still need access to Electric Desk I can provide help.

    I've been a user almost since day 1 - now many years later, I still use the spreadsheet portion of Electric Desk for quick, dirty, and easy spreadsheets. It is a handy tool.

    I graduated to Alpha4 Version 6 which I still run under OS/2.

    Now readers can identify me as a dinosaur - which I might be. But darned if it isn't nice to have things work correctly the very first time.

    BTW I am looking for a copy of the HELP files that go with Electric Desk. Somewhere along the conversion road I lost that disk.

    Thanks,
    Dave
