RUN WORDPERFECT AND LOTUS 1-2-3 ON XP 
Q: I know I’ve been a little slow to upgrade, but I’ve finally ­decided to move to Windows XP from Windows 98, which works well with Lotus 1-2-3 and WordPerfect. I’d liked to stay with those old-reliable applications. What are my chances of success once I move to XP?

A: Your chances are excellent. WordPerfect Office X3 runs well on XP, and you can download a 30-day trial version from www.corel.com. Similarly, you can find an XP-compatible version of Lotus 1-2-3 at www.lotus.com. And if you have other files that won’t open in XP, consider going to www.dataviz.com , where you can find Conversions Plus, which converts a wide rang of files.
