  Easy

  Right click on the worksheet name at the bottom of the page

  A whole heap of options appears

  One feature of Lotus which I've never found in Excel was the ability to have 
different colours for the worksheet tabs. If anyone has figured out how to do 
it in Excel I'd be interested.

    Ah Lotus

    At my last vacation ( sorry, vocation ) I inherited a management accountant 
postion which used Lotus 1 2 3 

    Shortly afterwards a change of FD meant we moved to Excel 2003 or whatever. 
For the next three years we had some spreadsheets in a lotus format and new 
ones in excel

    Apart from some printing routines being different, at a basic level I was 
happy with both

    I guess now everyone uses excel, but I can't remeber anything particular 
wrong with Lotus ( and Lotus's Organiser ( diary ) was second to none )

    Groundspeed calculation is easy. The headache is getting accurate wind data
    for the route and height you are flying at. It's not really an issue if
    bumbling along at 2000ft but if you are up at FL390 and hit a 150kt
    Jetstream it's going to throw things way out.

    My journey times entered in IVAO Pireps are always significantly longer 
    than those predicted in the FSC flight plan. That can be a nuisance if I 
    want to start a flight with the idea of arriving at a specific time; say 
    just before I'm expected to join SWMBO in watching a programme I 
    "wouldn't want to miss"!

    It's been fairly simple to modify the Lotus spreadsheet I put together 
    to calculate fuel loads. It now calculates, then adds in, taxi times, 
    time climbing to and descending from altitude, plus final approach and 
    landing, then adding these to time in the cruise. All of these are at 
    different speeds and I'm guessing that the FSC designer has just taken 
    total distance and divided by cruise speed.

    Even the more realistic stage by stage approach makes no allowance for 
    winds. I might be able to build that in but it will probably make my 
    head ache; even more.

    BTW, does anyone else still use Lotus?
