most spreadsheets

Thursday, 31st January, 2019

I don’t have any media but I do have a working lapper with win 3.11 and Excel 5, and most versions since somewhere. But this guy beats me by a million miles.

Fair play, the world record for most spreadsheet applications, including media and instruction manuals. (around 800 !!)

I never used Visicalc commercially but I did have an exe that ran on Windows at one point.

When I started we were using paper spreadsheets and gradually introducing Lotus 123 on dos. Dunno what version but the upgrade to the one with the : shortcut to all the formatting stuff was eye popping.

What is the oldest working spreadsheet you have access to?
