Ways of Opening Lotus Files (.wj2, .wk1)

Contents Index Previous Next

1. Opening by specifying file name (interface: ADO). Select 'File' option and then browse for the needed file.

2. Opening by specifying folder name (interface: ADO). Select 'Folder' option, select a driver from the dropdown list, and then browse for the needed folder with Lotus files.

3. Opening through connection string (interface: ADO). Select 'Connection string' option and write a connection string. This way is the most flexible one because it allows to specify many additional parameters in the connection string and override standard Exportizer connection behaviour. But it is recommended basically for advanced users. Here are basic connection strings (more examples and details can be found in the Internet):

Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Extended Properties="Lotus WJ2;DATABASE=C:\MyLotusFolder";

Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Extended Properties="Lotus WK1;DATABASE=C:\MyLotusFolder";
