After upgrading to Notes 8.5 some users are missing the option to import Lotus 1-2-3 files into a notes view.
The option is available in 8.0.2 but no longer in Notes 8.5. I did a little research and found the following. Obviously the installation / upgrade has changed the VIEWIMP variables in the client’s notes.ini.
VIEWIMP4=Calendar File (.ics),0,_IICAL,,.ICS,,1,
VIEWIMP5=Comma Separated Value,0,_ICSV,,.CSV,,1,
There is no VIEWIMPn= for Lotus 1-2-3 files.
OK, magic happens here. I simply copied the missing line from a Notes 8.0.2 installation.
and restarted the client. And … tadaaaaaaa …
Is it a bug or a feature?? I have opened a PMR. Unfortunately, IBM is still in the process of gathering information about my environment instead of simply reproduce the issue …
