|If a local network has been set up and if file and printer sharing has been enabled on both computers, then you should see at least a few things that are on the other computer from both computers. |
Note that I don't have Windows 7 installed on a computer but I do have Vista installed on a computer, dual booting with XP, many things are the same in both Vista and Windows 7, and I also have another computer on the same local network. .
With both computers running....
On the Windows 7 computer, double click on the Computer icon.
On the left there should be a Network heading - if there is, double click on it. On the right, you should see an icon for the computer name of the XP computer - if so, double click on it to see what on the XP computer is presently being shared - there should be some things there.
If you do see the XP computer, and some things on it ...
In Windows 7, in Computer, go to the folder where the Lotus123 files are.
RIGHT click on the folder name, choose Share.
Click on Advanced Sharing - click on the blank square beside Share this folder to insert a checkmark there.
Optionally, type a name for the folder.
Click on OK.
The XP computer will than be able to access the folder the Lotus 123 files are in.
NOTE - you may have to reboot both computers at this point, one at a time.
On the XP computer....
with both computers running...
Start - My Network Places - View workgroup computers.
The icon with the computer name of the Windows 7 computer should be there. If it is, double click on it.
Double click on the folder that has the Lotus 123 files in it. Copy what you want to the XP computer. e.g. RIGHT click on something, choose Copy - minimize the window - double click on My Computer - go to the folder you want the file to be in, RIGHT click on the name of the folder, choose Paste.
