Our consultants at Milliman use Lotus. What do they know that nobody else knows?

what do they NOT know that we do? That Microsoft's monopoly is ever increasing and wide-spreading. Make your life easier... if you don't want their software, just write Bill a check and mail it directly to him.
Seriously, most places I have worked at use Excel because 'everybody else does.' 'everybody' meaning all the departments and clients and vendors we work with. It's not evil, just convenient. I actually liked Lotus when I used it, and was annoyed by Excel when I fisrt saw it; it was... *gasp* ...different! But like most things, you get used to it.

I still use an older version at home. It's what I learned on, so I still am more familier with it. I like just going /wdr and deleting a row.

They know that Lotus has better mathematcal and database functions and does macros much more easily than Excel.
I use both - depending on the nature of the project and the intended user. (They are much more compatible than they used to be.)

to delete entire row in Excel,
highlight row (or column) by clicking on the letter (or number) and hit [ctrl-(keypad minus)]
[ctrl-(keypad minus)] then r(enter)
add an icon to a toolbar to do it
I have no complaints...
