In Notes client R7 I could import data from a Lotus 1-2-3 worksheet from a Notes view context, but in R8.5 is not possible anymore.
What about introducing a brand-new MS Excel or Symphony importing option?

It is still there but hidden

Add a line to the client notes.ini

VIEWIMP5=Lotus 1-2-3,0,_IWKSV,,.123,.WK1,.WK3,.WK4,.WKS,.WR1,.WRK,,4,

where 5 must be replaced by the next available number. Then restart your client

We still need a Symphony AND Excel import option too though. Lotus 123 is so last century.
