WordPro Address List

Q: WordPro Address List

I have a friend who has created a mailing list using a feature of WordPro. It created a file with an extension of lwp. She uses it to do mail merges. Does anyone know a way to import such a file into Lotus 1-2-3, or Approach (or any other spreadsheet or database)?

Preferred Solution: WordPro Address List

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: WordPro Address List

I think I may be one of the few people who has actually used Word Pro, but unfortunately I don't remember using that feature.

If I'm not mistaken, LWP is just the normal file format for Word Pro. If so, you can at least get the information in a basic form by just saving the file in a format that other programs understand (like Word or even just plain text).

If there's a way in Word Pro to save the mailing list in a more meaningful universal format, you could try that. It's possible it will allow you to save the data in CSV format (comma separated values - sometimes tabs are used as well), which would at least keep the pieces of data separate and might allow you to import it more easily.

It's not a knock against this forum, but what I might actually recommend is repeating the question on the Lotus SmartSuite forums.


(Filtered for only Word Pro messages: http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/ssforum...penView&ExpandView&RestricttoCategory=WordPro )

The truth is, not too many people are using Word Pro these days, although it's got some advantages over Word, namely its page layout is a lot more sophisticated.

You might be able to find a PIM (personal information manager) program that will import the data for you. Then you could export it elsewhere. I can't tell you one off the top of my head (or even if one exists), but it's possible. Maybe Word Pro was/is popular in some foreign country, for instance, and some enterprising Fijian wrote just what you need. I'm not sure.

Barring all of that, you could try checking out what these guys have to offer. They make data conversion software, so they might have something or be able to offer a tip or a lead of some kind.

1. http://www.dataviz.com/products/conversionsplus/cpw_translist.html

2. http://www.verity.com/products/oem_solutions/keyview/index.html
Here's one PIM that seems to have a tiny bit of integration with Word Pro. It might or might not have what you need, but maybe their guys could answer your question.

Finally, you might check out the Lotus Organizer Time and Contact Manager program.


(demo download at http://www.softwarelight.com/index.php?category=Utilities&program=Lotus+Organizer or
http://www.downseek.com/download/7289.asp )

If any program can import this stuff, it would be Lotus's own program. (After that, you could export it elsewhere.) If Lotus isn't even compatible with Lotus, then this is probably hopeless, unfortunately. I'd recommend a cheap temp with decent data entry skills.

If it's not too much data, pop in a CD, put on some headphones, and drift away into data-entry-never-land. It's more rewarding than you'd think. (Not really.)

I'm using windows XP and Lotus Word Pro 9.

A few months ago I would open Word Pro 9 and start using frames or tables and it would say "WordPro.exe" has crashed." and I have the options to "Send error report" or "Don't send error report"
then when I close that box, lotus closes and I lose all my unsaved work

its still doing this now but its also started doing it at random and sometimes when I press save!

I cant work like that!!

Here is the tech info that pops up:
AppName: wordpro.exe AppVer: ModName: wordpro.exe
ModVer: Offset: 0004cb28

Anyone know how I can solve this or should I reinstall the whole Lotus suite again?

I can easily alphabetize the names in my address book in Outlook
Express but when I create a "group", I cannot seem to get the list in the order I need. It seems to pick up the first name or other name and I don't see a function to change this. Initially the group is added in correct order. Any suggestions?
Thanks much!

A:Order of Address List

I posted this back in January and don't think I saw an answer.
I just tried it again and when I added the names to a new "group" in last name order and when I looked at them after I accepted the group list they were in first name order and I don't see how to reorder them.
Mail items sent to this group, of course, are sent out by first name, which confuses people. I guess I could send blind copies and no one would see anything but this particular list, the people like to have the other email address.
Thanks much!

Hello All,
I have created 3 new Distribution Groups however, cannot see them in the Global Address List. There is currently a Distribution Group in the GAL that was created before I took over, and the account properties on the new DG's I created and the one that was already there are identical. In AD U&C the Group Scope is Universal and the Group Type is Distribution, on the groups I created and the Group that was already there. If I log onto my terminal server that has Outlook installed, I can see the DG's in the GAL, but if I load Outlook on my local machine, they are not in the GAL.
Anyone have any Ideas for me to try?!?

In our organisation, we have 200+ users that use Microsoft outlook 2016 or Office 365 Outlook (clients).

All of them are set to auto for their Global Address List, which unfortunately checked the offline version first before the online version. We want to set the Online Global Address List as default and the only way I think I can do this is via Group Policy. But I have no clue on how to set it up, I've done a few searches and found nothing, apart from older versions of Outlook that it doesn't work for.

Has anyone else done this?

Well, those *******s at Microsoft have done it again. The Address List in Microsoft Outlook Express that docks at the lower left side of the OE window is gone missing on me and I have no idea how to restore it and I have wasted over an hour screwing with it to no avail.

A normally intelligent person would believe that restoring the Address List should be a one click operation but obviously that is too hard for those ***-wipes at Microsoft to accomplish so they made it a hide & seek Address List.

It is times like this that make me think seriously about taking a baseball bat to my Windows computer and then buying an Apple Computer. At least then I would know I have something that works the way it is supposed to.

If anyone can please give me a set of directions (and please keep it to under 50 pages; but that may not be possible the way the morons at Microsoft write their code) on how I can restore my Address List I would really, REALLY appreciate it.

Thanks and Happy Holidays to all.

I created an outlook.com e-mail account. I exported my address book from Windows live as a .csv file. I imported it from Outlook.com. Everything went OK and said successful. My problem is I can't find it. When I create an e-mail message and click on To, the only address there is mine. When I click on People from the drop down link, the address are there, but you can't do anything with them. Any thoughts?


A:Outlook.com address list

If you go to the People page on Outlook.com, and click on a contact, does it show the email address?

I also had problems getting a csv file to work from Outlook 2003 into Outlook.com.

What I found was that certain phone number fields didn't get imported into outlook.com, even though when I tried an export from outlook.com, those very same fields were there in its own export csv format. The records imported and their names were there, but useful information like phone numbers wasn't (with no error mentioning it).

I think what I did in the end was manually type a test contact into outlook.com, with email/ phone number etc. filled in, and work out how it exported from outlook.com, and moved the data around in my import csv into different columns to match.

W10 up and running very well, the only change is a new email client, recommended by an "expert" In fact it's not so different to "Outlook" I'm using "Thunderbird" as my email client. Took me some time to sort out where/how, to set up a contacts list. I got it up and running and a list of contacts on the left side of the screen. All that was required was to click the mail name and it was entered in the "to" space. However that has disappeared. Now I have to open the addresses from "tools" click on each name, the addresses then vanish so I have to start again entering a new address, ad nauseam - I'd really like to get the list on the left side again

I use Lotus Smart Suite, 1996 version on one computer and 1997 version on another. Nearly all documents are written on the 1996 word-pro, and saved to a floppy. When that computer was down I edited and added to a document on the other (97)computer, now when I try to open it on the original (96) version I get "This document was edited with a newer version of Word Pro. The document cannot be opened with your current version of Word Pro."
Is there any way of getting this back to the '96 form. It's about 12 pages long, I don't want to have to type it all again.

Apparently I don't know what I am doing.

I have a user who's username ended up being very close to that of the head of our HR department. Because of this, people aren't paying attention and are sending sensitive HR information to this user. We decided the best way to fix this was to rename the user. So, in AD, I changed:

The users name as is listed in AD Users and Groups
The Display Name (under General Tab)
The logon name (under account tab)
Alias (under Exchange General)
and everything under Email Addresses

It is not that this didn't work. The user can now log on as their new user account. The email transferred over fine and if I email the new email account it goes right through. Also, the old user account can no longer log in. However, the one problem that I am having is that the old email account still works and the users old name still shows up in the GAL. I have no idea how to fix these two problems. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Teller3, a lot of people seem to having this kind of problem lately. Have you run an updated antivirus scan?

You can do an online one here:


It would also be useful to see what you have running at startup. There are some websites out there that can cause the Windows Search and Homepage entries in the registry to be modified every bootup. There files may show up in the Startuplog.

You can download, unzip and run the Startuplog.com file from the site below. It will place a file, Startuplog.txt, on your desktop. Just copy and paste the entire contents of that (not stubbpaths.txt) to your next reply.

I am running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005.

I have used Lotus word pro 98 for some time now without problems and i decided to upgrade to a new release, I bought Lotus smartsuite on a CD and I uninstalled lotus 98 and then I installed the new version.

now, every time i move pictures around in wordpro my document, it crashes.

It will also crash every time I include a table in my document; it will either crash;
1) when I try to enter content into the table;
2) when i try to move the table; or
3) it will hang when I press save, then crash
then I lose all my work

I recently got a "RoadTrip" branded IP camera (which, after looking up the MAC address list in my router, found out that it is actually a webcam made by SHENZHEN BILIAN ELECTRONIC CO.?LTD. The only way to view this camera is, apparently, on one app on a smartphone, which I have working now. I also tried to connect it to my ivideon account on my laptop, and it "worked," but the image did not show up. However, when I scanned for available devices via the ivideon server on my laptop, a mystery device showed up along with my IP camera with an IP address in Poland- that IP address is I do not have any other IP cameras in my house. This particular IP address also does not show in my router log; it only shows up on the ivideon server's list of available devices.

Is there any logical information as to what this mystery IP address is and why it would show up in my network? When I looked it up, it comes up with Akamai Technologies- could this also somehow be connected with my IP camera?

Also, the IP camera is producing an IP address of its own on my network- it's similar to the IP addresses used by my smartphone- is this normal?

On another note, this particular IP camera requires my wifi username and password in order for me to view it. Is this safe?

Thank you.
