Lotus word pro has always been my preferred word processor but unable to find it in my local area when I got my new laptops. Thanks to using Amazon have rectified this problem for my XP laptop Lotus SmartSuite 9.8.2 For Windows XP and got a good reference book with Smartsuite for Dummies. Also very pleased with the time taken to deliver all the items I have purchased so far.

My purchase covered the Millenium version of Smartsuite. The explanations are clear and it is an easy manual to work with.

HASH(0x9eada69c) out of 5 stars Great Basics for Lotus Smartsuite 2000 5 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Since I had never used Lotus Smartsuite, this book provided me with the basics to understand all of Smartsuite's components, and how to use them. I found the "tips" particularly useful. The linking information that tells you how to share your data from one part of the suite to another is great. The index helps you easily locate the information you need. This is an excellent resource for any Lotus Smartsuite novice.

HASH(0x9ecc7144) out of 5 stars Junk and nonsense 18 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Trying to learn Lotus or Approach from this book is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. It's great to know all the great possiblites, but some guidence in how to define data in the cells and entering a formula for a cell. I want $ signs and decimal points in my data. I know how to write a formula, but where do I find in your book, how to enter it? Yes, I want to know what the programs can do,(I already know much of that) but I need to know how to make the entries and definations. That's the reason I bought your book.

HASH(0x9ecc76a8) out of 5 stars Which Book am I Reviewing? 10 July 2001
By Fred Thompson - Published on
Format: Paperback
The photo of the cover shows a book called, "Smartsuite X For Dummies". The title beside the photo says, "Lotus Smartsuite Millennium Edition For Dummies".
"Millennium Edition For Dummies" is about release 9.5, and isn't a bad book for a rank beginner, but I had to buy several other books to really figure out most of what this book promised (like sharing data between the various programs in SmartSuite, which is addressed nowhere in the book but on the front cover, as far as I could tell).
"Smartsuite X" is (presumably) about release 10, which I don't have, so I haven't read this book.
If I do upgrade to release 10, though, I won't bother to buy the "Dummies" book. The QUE book "Using SmartSuite Millennium Edition" was a much better tutorial on 9.5, so I'd sooner buy the release 10 edition of that book instead.
As far as I can tell, anyone who wants to build stand alone applications with Lotus needs to learn Uncle Bill's Visual Basic Script language (VBS), which isn't really addressed in any Lotus book I've seen (Duh!). Might as well learn DBase or FoxBase; you can do a lot more a lot easier.

The book was as I had expected. It is very good and I will be using it as a reference. Also, I am eager to try it. It suggests many things that I new nothing about.
