BUG: Negative Numbers Incorrect After APPEND FROM TYPE WK3

ID: Q100549

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for MS-DOS, versions 2.0, 2.5
  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, version 2.5

SYMPTOMS

The commands APPEND FROM <file> TYPE WK3 and IMPORT FROM <file> TYPE WK3 bring erroneous negative numbers into FoxPro from a Lotus 1-2-3 revision 3.x file. For example, the number -13.85 in Lotus 1-2-3 will appear in FoxPro as 190.95.

RESOLUTION

To work around this problem, save the Lotus 1-2-3 worksheet as a .WKS or .WK1 file. In FoxPro, issue ONE of the following commands:

   APPEND FROM <file> TYPE WKS
   IMPORT FROM <file> TYPE WKS

   APPEND FROM <file> TYPE WK1
   IMPORT FROM <file> TYPE WK1

The correct negative numbers will now appear in FoxPro.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
