First the bugtracker title should just be a sum-up of the problem, the rest should be in description.

Then you don't tell what's the problem precisely.

Finally Dos Lotus 123 is a very old software. So if LO can read the file, you can then save an ods version and work on it.

Summary of OP

"I just want to commend your work, because I can read my spreadsheet files of Dos Lotus 123 version 3.1 with LibreOffice Cal, even though I am using Windows7 64 bits. Please make it possible for me to not only read, but also use the Lotus program."

Clearly  => WF

Using the sister Document Liberation Project (DLP) [1] provided libwps library LibreOffice provides import only filter of these legacy formats.

Once held as LibreOffice ODF Spreadsheet, you can work with and save the data to a relevant file format. But, there is no mechanism to filter export (or generate) Lotus 1 2 3, or MS Works formatted documents.
