Lotus(123) to Linux conversion


I am the treasurer of my golf club and many years ago when they went over to computers they started using Quicken98(It works out the VAT). I am now using this through Crossover but the problem is the limited printing options available.

I would like to convert some of the generated reports into spreadsheets but the only options are CSV and Lotus123 (prn) formats. The former(CSV) text files do not appear to convert to a spreadsheet so I only have the Lotus123 option.

Does anyone know of a conversion programme that will convert Lotus123 files to either xls or Openoffice spreadsheet files?

CSV can be used as a spreadsheet (it doesn't store formatting, though).
